Mark Massara, Director, California Coastal Programs, Sierra Club
"Today it’s all about protecting what's left of our invaluable coastline, including our public recreational harbors, from the encroachments of private commercial interests and luxury development geared toward only the wealthy.  Pursuant to the California Coastal Act and California law, public harbors and lower cost visitor serving amenities are prioritized and protected.  These mandates, and our legal obligations to protect precious natural resources, beaches and ocean waters, and the need to make available to all, must take precedent".

I personally support the efforts of DPBA in their efforts to protect public ocean access and preserve affordable recreational boating.  The organization has a long history of speaking out clearly and effectively on behalf of well managed public stewardship.  Together we can make a difference!

"Coastwalk's mission is to ensure the right of all people to reach and responsibly enjoy the  California coast.  We believe in a well-stewarded California coast, highly prized as an irreplaceable commons, open to all."

"We heartily support DPBA’s efforts to represent the interests of affordable boating in Dana Point and enhance public recreational access to the ocean and coastline.  We are definitely on the same team!"
