California Coastal Act
Vinod Khosla, a billionaire venture capitalist, is expected to testify Monday afternoon in Redwood City in a case where he’s accused of violating public access laws when he closed off Martins Beach.
A former Bay Area congressman joined surfers in a protest Thursday at a popular beach near Half Moon Bay, calling it an outrage that the landowner is blocking the only road to the public beach.
Scores of surfers, fishermen and supporters of open access to Martin’s Beach near Half Moon Bay plan to gather Thursday and bust through the gate in a show of support to gain public access to the coveted beach.
The suit claims the owner of Martin’s Beach is violating the California Coastal Act by blocking the only access road from Highway 1 to the shoreline, which is public.
