The fire rings are an essential part of southern California beach culture. They offer low cost enjoyment for families. They stand for a tradition that all southern California residents can enjoy and should have the chance to experience with their families for years to come.

Help support this petition to stop city council from removing all of Newport Beach's and CDM's fire pits. These fire pits serve as a fun, safe activity for families and people of all ages to go to and enjoy the warm nights in Southern California. They have been around for a long time and attract tourism and shoppers to the stores and restaurants in the surrounding area. If anything, the removal of these fire pits would hurt the business's in the area.

As a resident who lives Ocean side, less than 100 feet from the main street for entrance to the fire pits, I know better than anyone the pro and cons of these pits. I also share the parking lot with all fire pit users on a daily basis.I have never encountered gang activity, fights, or drug use.  We've already lost the funzone, lets not lose the fire pits also!

I just signed the following petition addressed to: California Coastal Commission.

Stop the removal of 60 fire rings at Big Corona State Beach and Balboa.

Help support this petition to stop city council from removing all of Newport Beach's and CDM's fire pits. These fire pits serve as a fun, safe activity for families and people of all ages to go to and enjoy the warm nights in Southern California. There is no reason why these fire pits should be removed. They have been around for a long time and attract tourism and shoppers to the stores and restaurants in the surrounding area. If anything, the removal of these fire pits would hurt the business's in the area.

I ask that the City Council of Newport Beach reassess their plan to remove these fire rings and that the California Coastal Commission deny the permits needed to remove these pits.
