You think parking in Pismo is bad? 

I recently read about the Pismo Beach parking problem. We here in Avila Beach have a worse problem. Not only do we not have enough parking for residents and visitors, we have a two-lane road to our beautiful community, beach, and Port San Luis Harbor.

In the year 2000, when the Avila Beach Specific Plan was certified by the California Coastal Commission, our lack of parking and our two-lane road were discussed. Over the past 15 years, they have been discussed numerous times, but that is all that has been done—talk, talk, and more talk—with no action taken to correct the problem.

I recently attended a hometown meeting and not one but four huge projects consisting of RV spaces, campsites, cabins, hotels, conference rooms, and much more were being proposed for our area.

The Avila Beach community has been trying for 15 years to get more road access to our town and more parking. Our request seems to have fallen on deaf ears. No developments of this size should even be considered. Let’s correct the problems we now have before we take on another one.
