Drive-Up Toilet Appeals

Off-Roader Drive-Up Restroom Appeal

We object to the drive-up restrooms. Among the reasons: They are not in the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Area as noticed. They are to be placed in an area where Off-Highway Vehicle Use is prohibited, including a Buffer Area according to the County General Plan, and a clam preserve, according to current county ordinance.

State law prohibits SVRA's from locating in other state park system units, such as Pismo State Beach Park Unit.

La Grande Tract, is governed by SLO County, not state law. The operating agreement will expire before the drive-up restrooms can be built.

Drive-Up Toilet Appeal : Exploding Toilets

Dune photography shows why the area of the proposed drive-up toilets was designated a National Natural Landmark. Off-roaders show no respect for the beach and dunes by blowing up the vault toilets, and bashing into honey huts. This contamination of the dunes continues uncontrolled.

ODSVRA's Seedy Sewer System 02:51

The ODSVRA has muscled its way onto Pismo State Beach, against Public Resources Code regulations. It thinks it can actually position itself between the Pismo Dunes Natural Preserve and a major part of its habitat, the beach. It is attempting to expand its pitiful sewer system: six more bathrooms to be added to the existing seven to serve what amounts to the population of Pismo Beach. The bio-waste from these vaults is pumped out of the vaults and trucked down the beach, through a clam preserve where vehicles are prohibited by county ordinance, a buffer zone where vehicles are prohibited by the county general plan and local coastal plan, and through Arroyo Grande Creek with its four endangered species. This project is a visual blight, habitat destroyer, and is obviously an attempt to expand the ODSVRA beyond its capacity to manage the population.

Morning Walk (v2) 02:51

These are images of Oceano Dunes, the magnificent inspiration of a 360 degree perfect beauty that has no involvement and no manipulation of our species. Because it is all so balanced and perfect in itself, it connects people with their center and their own balance and perfection. That is what nature does for us. Experiencing the destruction and exploitation of these dunes by off-road vehicles makes me feel as if I am witnessing rape without being able to stop it. Maybe my voice and these images will contribute to the awareness of this crucial issue, to preserve our most precious treasures we have, which inspired me to move from Europe to live here

Sewer System In ODSVRA? 02:21

"Sewer system" in Oceano Dunes? CEQA disregarded. Development in ODSVRA prior to decision by Board of Supervisors on fate of La Grande Tract. Roadside restrooms in a Buffer Area against SLOCO General Plan. Who's driving this train? (less)
