Save Mother's Beach is the voice of the Marina del Rey Community Boating Council, a coalition of recreational boating groups and individuals, all water sport enthusiasts. We are dedicated to preserving public access to Mother's Beach.
As one of the only sheltered beach environments in Los Angeles, Mother's Beach not only provides beachgoers with a protected ocean environment, but also provides recreational boaters with a safe and accessible beach to launch personal watercraft including among others kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, rowing shells, outrigger canoes, paddleboards, sailboards etc.
Currently, personal watercraft accessibility and launches are made easy by the loading zone and public parking, which are conveniently adjacent to the beach. This proximity and accessibility allows and encourages public enjoyment of ocean watersports. Accordingly, these characteristics define Mother's Beach as a unique community resource.
WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN THIS PETITION:
Unfortunately, current land use development proposals threaten future access to Mother's Beach. Current Los Angeles County department of Regional Planning proposals seek to limit public parking in Marina del Rey by converting seemingly-underused public parking lots into private development projects. Mother's Beach's parking lot is one such lots slated for "redevelopment."
Without the adjacent loading and parking areas, continued public access will be severely restricted. Accordingly, Marina del Rey Community Boating Council is committed to ensuring continued public access to this unique resource.
Join us to save Mother's Beach!
