San Luis Obispo County Parks will hold a Public Workshop this month to hear input on a plan to create a safer parking area at Cave Landing.
Cave Landing includes numerous unimproved trails, including a trail from the unpaved parking area to Pirate’s Cove beach.
Safety concerns in the secluded area include night time parties, public drunkenness, drug use and petty theft, along with numerous injuries and medical responses.
The site also contains sensitive archaeological resources and is a Native American sacred site.
A workshop was held last April to figure out a scope of minimal work that would allow for better protection of the natural area.
The last workshop’s results will be presented at the workshop this month. The public will have the opportunity to voice their thoughts on the ability of the design to help implement potential solutions.
“We continue to hear that the public wants to protect this beautiful area and supports adding it to the County Park System as a Natural Area,” said County Parks Director Nick Franco. “We need to hear from the public if we are on the right track so we can most effectively proceed with a low scale project that will help protect Cave Landing.”
The meeting will take place on Feb. 26 at 6 p.m. at the PG&E Community Education Center in San Luis Obispo, located at 6588 Ontario Road.
