Thank you for your recent commentary on Pirate’s Cove (Joe Tarica, “Pirate’s Cove is a mess, and almost no one cares,” Aug. 6). It is a shame that one of our most scenic coastal settings is so abused and neglected.
Coastal Commission members, in particular Commissioner Eric Howell from Pismo Beach, were irresponsible in their decision to deny San Luis Obispo County’s plan to improve the Pirate’s Cove area. Their decision to do nothing has allowed the area to further deteriorate into an embarrassing trash dump. It is time for action to restore and protect the natural splendor of Pirate’s Cove.
