LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - The California Coastal Commission has approved a plan to install parking machines and hike holiday parking fees at several popular Orange County beaches.

The commission on Friday voted to let the state's Department of Parks and Recreation install automated parking machines at the beaches and charge a $20 flat holiday rate - up from $15.

The move comes as the department seeks funding to offset a 37 percent drop in general fund cash in the last five years. Parks officials have faced opposition to similar efforts at some Northern California beaches where parking was traditionally free.

Friday's vote affects Orange County's Crystal Cove State Park, Doheny State Beach and San Clemente State Beach.
