Community members are demanding to keep off-highway vehicle use at the Oceano Dunes in the future.
Friends of Oceano Dunes, a non-profit that supports the use of OHV’s at the state park, organized the protest Sunday afternoon.
The protest comes as the California Coastal Commission is set to hold a meeting on Thursday to phase out off-roading over the next five years.
Members of the non-profit submitted a 30 page letter from their attorney with 3,000 additional pages of documentation to support their side.
The California Coastal Commission staff recommendation for the Thursday, March 18 hearing is to phase out off-roading over five years.
