State Coastal Conservancy Welcomes Asm. Gonzalez Fletcher and Asm. Limón to its Oversight Board
The California State Coastal Conservancy welcomes two new members to its Oversight Board, Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher (D-San Diego) and Assemblymember Monique Limón (D-Santa Barbara). The appointments, made by Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Lakewood), entrust the new Board members to provide legislative oversight and support the Conservancy in its mission to protect, restore and enhance the California coast.
Assemblymember Limón said, “I am honored to have been chosen to represent the Central Coast and all of California on the Coastal Conservancy Board. As a lifelong coastal resident, I understand–as do the counties I represent–the unique challenges and overwhelming importance of protecting our coastline and oceans. I look forward to continuing the vital work of the Conservancy in preserving, protecting, and restoring California’s greatest coastal resources.”
Coastal Conservancy Executive Officer Samuel Schuchat said, “We are delighted to have Assemblymembers Gonzalez Fletcher and Limón joining our Oversight Board. Both have demonstrated longstanding commitment to protecting our coast, and to increasing access to the shoreline for all Californians. They bring a wealth of experience to the Conservancy, and new perspectives on how to manage our State’s coastal resources.”
The Coastal Conservancy is a State agency established in 1976 to protect and improve natural lands and waterways, help people access and enjoy the outdoors and sustain local economies along the length of California’s coast. In addition to managing projects across the California coast and providing grants to partner organizations, the Coastal Conservancy’s Climate Ready Program assists communities in adapting to the impacts of climate change and increasing the resilience of ecosystems.
The Coastal Conservancy is governed by a seven-member Board of Directors, appointed by the Governor and California Legislature. Six members of the Legislature, three from each house, comprise an Oversight Board, which provides legislative oversight and participates in Conservancy activities. Assemblymembers Gonzalez Fletcher and Limón have filled two vacant seats on the Oversight Board.
