LOS ANGELES (AP) - A stretch of remote California coastline would become available to the public under a proposal expected to receive approval by the state's powerful Coastal Commission.
The panel is expected to vote Thursday on a plan that would transfer 36 coastal acres from private owners to Santa Barbara County to expand a current park at Jalama Beach near Point Conception
The transfer would be part of a settlement to mitigate unpermitted development including installation of dozens of water wells and grading on the ranch land 150 miles northwest of Los Angeles.
