An act to add Section 31410 to the Public Resources Code, relating
to coastal resources. INTRODUCED BY Assembly Member Berg
AB 1568, as introduced, Berg. Coastal resources: Ma-le'l Dunes.
Existing law requires the State Coastal Conservancy to coordinate the development of the California Coastal Trail.
This bill would designate the portion of the Ma-le'l Dunes in Humboldt County that is part of the California Coastal Trail and that is under the jurisdiction of the conservancy as the Senator Wesley Chesbro Coastal Trail. The bill would require the conservancy to erect appropriate signage to reflect the designation and to cause all directories and other publications concerning the California Coastal Trail to reflect the designation as the publications are periodically revised.

The state Senate Natural Resources Committee passed a bill Tuesday that would designate a part of the Ma-le'l Dunes as the “Sen. Wesley Chesbro Coastal Trail.”
The Ma-le'l Dunes, located west of Arcata, are part of the coastal dune system of the north and south spit of Humboldt Bay.
Chesbro represented the North Coast region in the state Senate from 1998 to 2006. He authored legislation to direct the State Coastal Conservancy to develop a California Coastal Trail action plan to be completed by 2008. Chesbro currently serves on the Integrated Waste Management Board
He previously was a Humboldt County supervisor and an Arcata City councilman. Chesbro has been a resident of Humboldt County for 28 years.
Assembly Bill 1568 now goes to the Senate Appropriations Committee.
Seems that our Senators would have something better to do with their time.
