OB scene from hill by TravisAfter nearly 20 years of meetings, workshops, studies, petitions, and even mobilizations of community members – the Ocean Beach Community Plan gained its final approval on January 14th, 2016 by the California Coastal Commission.

What a process it has been! What a truly grassroots movement combined with the work of city staff it has been. Especially the final phase that culminated during the summer of 2014 when the Plan Update was unanimously approved by the San Diego City Council, after a petition drive in support of key elements of the Plan garnered 4,000 signatures.

Here is the official statement by the OB Planning Board:

On January 14, 2016, the California Coastal Commission issued its final certification of the new Ocean Beach Community Plan, placing it officially in effect throughout Ocean Beach. This final step marked the culmination of over 10 years of hard work by the community, the Precise Plan Update Committee, and City staff.

The de minimis version below is the official Ocean Beach Community Plan, although it currently lacks color and some formatting. The City is currently producing the final, formatted version, which will be posted here when available.

The Ocean Beach Planning Board extends its sincere congratulations and appreciation to everyone who worked toward this milestone.
