Explore the Coast Overnight Assessment Public Draft Released

Beach Cottage at Crystal Cove

The California State Coastal Conservancy is proud to announce the first draft of the Explore the Coast Overnight Assessment.

The draft assessment can be found here: Explore the Coast Overnight Assessment Draft

In 2017, the California Legislature passed AB 250, which directs the Conservancy to create a Lower-Cost Coastal Accommodations (LCCA) program, publicly known as the Explore the Coast Overnight Program. This program aims to create more opportunities for all Californians to stay overnight at the coast. This assessment on LCCAs includes a discussion on existing supply and demand for LCCAs, categories of LCCAs, feasibility and considerations, criteria for prioritizing LCCA projects, a description of funding sources and financing mechanisms, and a list of potential LCCA projects.

More information on the Explore the Coast Overnight Program can be found here: http://scc.ca.gov/projects/explore-the-coast-overnight/

The comments received will be reviewed and may be integrated into the assessment, which will then be presented at the State Coastal Conservancy’s board meeting on March 14, 2019. The public board meeting is planned to take place at the Lakeside Room at Fairmount Park, 2601 Fairmount Blvd, Riverside, CA 92501. More details about the board meeting will be posted to the State Coastal Conservancy’s website, scc.ca.gov, as it gets closer to March 14.
