Coastal resources?

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.

  1. Giving Cheese-bro a 117,ooo $ dollar a year do nothing political appointment isn't rubbing the salt in the wounds of locals enough. No, this carpet bagging scumb bag wants to poke us in the eyes every time we see a sign with his name on it for ever. God can't he just go away and smoke his dope somewhere else. Where's Berg's right to die bill when it's really needed.

  2. Yes 2:37PM YES !

    What the hell?!!

  4. I don't know, it just struck me as a little incongruous. The trend in naming has been to honor the spirit of the place, with names like Ma-le'l. And then, it seems like you usually name something after a guy after he's dead, or at least left office. Not to mention, I wonder, aren't there more pressing issues? More important legislation? Like getting the money back into the counties? Ah, well. Guess it doesn't matter.

  5. Rose: I just hope Wesley doesn't just cake walk his way to Berg's First District seat. He needs to just stay away.

  6. Samoa,Wes will do just that as long as good people like you won't stand up aganist the progressive failures of the last 25+ years.Welfare for all. Work is a dirty word. Parks,parks,parks. You won't speak out loud and clear because your afraid they may turn on you. Wake up, they already have turned on you and us.

  7. Wes has plans for Bergs seat when she leaves. That is well known. Bet your life on it.

  8. Not plans my friend. It's a done deal. The stationary is already printed and the wine&cheese circuit for the election is only a mechanism for further fund raising and pre-election back room deals. Can you spell "baykeeper" or " carpetbagger". This district is in the toilet and were swimming with the big turds.
