Enacted in 1976, the State Coastal Conservancy Act calls for the California Coastal Conservancy to have a principal role in the implementation of a system of public accessways to and along the state’s coastline, including development of the California Coastal Trail. The Coastal Conservancy pursues this mandate in part by awarding grants to public agencies and nonprofit organizations to acquire land, or any interest therein, or to develop, operate, or manage lands for public access purposes to and along the California coastline. The California Coastal Trail, once completed, will extend 1,200 miles from the Oregon to Mexico boundary lines, including a segment through the City of Rancho Palos Verdes.
According to the City’s Conceptual Trails Plan and the Council adopted Vision Plan, the City’s segment of the California Coastal Trail extends the entire length of the City’s coastline between the boundary lines of the City of Palos Verdes Estates and the City of Los Angeles. Specifically, the City’s segment of the California Coastal Trail traverses the public right-of-way (Palos Verdes Drive West and South), the City-owned Palos Verdes Nature Preserve, and private properties with trail access easements granted to the City (i.e. Terranea Resort and Spa and Trump National Golf Course). A good portion of the City’s trail segment is unimproved or unconstructed, while none of the trails are identified with the State designated trail markers.
The City of Rancho Palos Verdes, with the assistance of the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy (PVPLC), applied for a State grant through the California Coastal Conservancy to fund the construction of the City’s segment of the California Coastal Trail. The Coastal Conservancy Board will consider the grant request at its upcoming October 21, 2010 public meeting located at Temescal Gateway Park in Pacific Palisades at 9:00 am.
