The city will receive $16.2 million to complete an old project to relocate the parking lot and crumbling bike path farther inland at Surfers Point. The California Coastal Conservancy approved the $16.2 million for the work. It is the second phase of a project that started well over a decade ago.
Surfrider started advocating for the project in the 1990’s. Paul Jenkin, Ventura campaign coordinator at the Surfrider Foundation stated “We are really happy to see that we are finally going to see it constructed.”
The project moves the publicly owned bike path and parking lot around 70 feet inland to prevent even more erosion.
