SLO County supervisors find no easy fix for Pirate's Cove

Posted: Updated:

When it comes to what to do about the trash, graffiti and criminal activity at Pirate's Cove, the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors are still trying to figure out the best solution. 

At Tuesday's Board meeting, County Parks and Recreation presented the supervisors with three options:

  1. Hiring more law enforcement at an estimated $500,000 a year 
  2. Doing minimal improvements, like adding trash cans and a gate to restrict parking hours
  3. The most drastic plan - selling the land 

Supervisors had no interest in selling the land but couldn't agree on what the best option would be. Instead, they directed Parks and Rec to work with the Coastal Commission and the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office to come up with a plan that mixes more staffing and physical improvements.

"The county cares a lot about Pirate's Cove and the Cave Landing area and everybody wants to do the right thing. It's just hard to find out exactly what that right thing is," said Nick Franco, Director of San Luis Obispo County Parks and Recreation. 

The Sheriff's Office wants to place security cameras around Pirate's Cove, but that would require a Coastal Commission permit. A project plan is expected in a few months.
