Seal Rock Reserve Established

February 1, 1993-┬áCity Attorney approved a request recommending a reserve with a fixed boundary beginning 200 feet east of the seaward entrance to the Children’s Pool. It passed unanimously after an amendment that extended the boundaries “to include the compromise area that goes practically to the beach that was presented by Barbara Bamburger. This discreet area shall be in effect for five years on a trial basis and is off limits to swimmers, divers and tourists. Access to the riptide is not affected because the divers can come in and go out through the Children’s Pool.”

November 18, 1993-┬áCalifornia Coastal Commission approved the establishment of the Reserve in the vicinity of Seal Rock. The approval was conditioned on the City obtaining approval of the SLC and the boundaries of the Reserve not including any “sandy beach area.”
