Authored by California State Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher (D-San Diego), AB 250 would make California’s spectacular coastline and beaches more affordable for visitors. The bill would require the State Coastal Conservancy to establish a program for low-cost beach accommodations.
The bill creates a program to support more affordable overnight accommodations in state and local parks on the coast, including campgrounds, cabins, hostels and motels, while protecting the natural and scenic resources. The program would take steps to make sure these accommodations are affordable for low- and moderate-income families and to youth-serving and educational organizations. The Coastal Conservancy would consult with State Parks, the Coastal Commission and local agencies to develop the plan and make sure it meets community needs.
Our beaches mean so much to us. They are where we live, where we work, and where we come to play. Our beaches are the entryway to our ocean and we believe that beaches should be accessible to everyone. This is why our network of staff experts, volunteers, and members are determined to keep our beaches accessible for all to enjoy.Learn More
