Draft Local Coastal Plan comments needed ASAP

It’s time to get serious about comments on the Draft Local Coastal Plan update.  
The Planning Department is  targeting a 11 November Board of Supervisors date for a discussion workshop. They are looking for comments to be submitted by August 3, 2020 so that they can analyze the feedback. 
There were huge problems that became apparent in the 3 workshops where documents were not easy to re4ad, maps and appendix’s were not coordinated, Marine Protection zones were excluded, Endangered Species Areas went from 3 to 1, no written prohibition of fossil fuel support facilities and more. Please send in your comments so your voice will be heard.
