PUBLIC RESOURCES CODE
SECTION 30530-30534



30530.  It is the intent of the Legislature, consistent with the
provisions of Chapter 9 (commencing with Section 31400) of Division
21, that a program to maximize public access to and along the
coastline be prepared and implemented in a manner that ensures
coordination among and the most efficient use of limited fiscal
resources by federal, state, and local agencies responsible for
acquisition, development, and maintenance of public coastal
accessways. There is a need to coordinate public access programs so
as to minimize costly duplication and conflicts and to assure that,
to the extent practicable, different access programs complement one
another and are incorporated within an integrated system of public
accessways to and along the state's coastline. The Legislature
recognizes that different public agencies are currently implementing
public access programs and encourages such agencies to strengthen
those programs in order to provide yet greater public benefits.




30531.  The commission shall be responsible for the preparation of a
public coastal access program which includes the elements set forth
in this section and which, to the maximum extent practicable, is
incorporated into the local coastal programs prepared, approved, and
implemented pursuant to this division.
   (a) On or before January 1, 1981, the commission shall prepare a
coastal access inventory. The coastal access inventory shall be
updated on a continuing basis and shall include, but not be limited
to, the following information:
   (1) A list identifying lands held or operated for the purpose of
providing public access to or along the coast. Each listing shall
include a brief description of the type of access provided, access
constraints, access facility ownership, and resources or uses for
which access is provided or suitable.
   (2) A list of known offers to dedicate, accepted dedications, and
any other legally binding actions taken that provide opportunities
for any type of public use of or access to or along the coast. Each
listing shall include a brief description of the legal status of the
instrument granting or otherwise providing public access, whether
public access is physically available, and if not, what action is
necessary to be taken to accomplish actual public use.
   (3) A map showing the precise location of the listings included
pursuant to paragraphs (1) and (2) of this subdivision.
   (b) On or before June 1, 1980, the commission shall, in
consultation with the Department of Parks and Recreation, the State
Coastal Conservancy, and other appropriate public agencies, make
recommendations to guide state, local, and to the extent permitted by
law federal public agencies in the identification, development, and
management of public accessways to and along the coast. The
recommendations made pursuant to this section shall be consistent
with the public access policies of this division and, with respect to
recommendations relating to development of public accessways,
consistent with the policy of protecting coastal resources.
   (c) On or before January 1, 1981, and from time to time
thereafter, the commission, in consultation with the State Coastal
Conservancy and other affected public agencies, shall identify the
public agency or agencies it deems the most appropriate agency or
agencies to accept responsibility for the management of those public
coastal accessways listed pursuant to subdivision (a) for which no
public agency has accepted such management responsibilities. In
identifying the agency or agencies most appropriate to accept public
access management responsibilities, the commission shall include its
best estimate of costs for the development, operation, and
maintenance of such accessways and shall recommend to the Governor
and the Legislature a method of funding such costs. In preparing its
recommendations for funding public coastal accessway operation and
maintenance costs, the commission shall develop alternative,
innovative funding techniques that take into account the
appropriateness of local funding for the operation and maintenance of
accessways that serve primarily local needs. If the commission
identifies a state agency as the appropriate agency to assume
management responsibility and such agency does not accept such
responsibility, the agency shall, by December 31 of the year in which
the commission completes its report, advise the commission of its
reasons why it did not or cannot accept such responsibility. The
State Coastal Conservancy shall take those actions it deems
appropriate, including necessary agreements, to negotiate or
otherwise accomplish the acceptance of management responsibility by
the agency identified by the commission.



30532.  The commission may enter into agreements with or issue
grants to any public agency for the purpose of assisting the
commission in meeting the requirements of this article. The
commission shall, to the extent available funding permits, enter into
agreements with those state agencies that currently operate some
form of public coastal access program for the purpose of completing
the inventory required by subdivision (a) of Section 30531. The
commission shall enter into an agreement with the State Coastal
Conservancy to provide the funding necessary for the conservancy to
carry out its responsibilities pursuant to this article and Chapter 9
(commencing with Section 31400) of Division 21.



30533.  (a) On or before January 1 of each year, the commission and
the State Coastal Conservancy shall report to the Governor and the
Legislature the progress made in implementing the public coastal
access program established by this article. The report shall include
progress in facilitating the acceptance of outstanding offers to
dedicate and shall identify new offers to dedicate recorded in the
previous fiscal year. For each offer to dedicate accepted or recorded
in the previous calendar year, the report shall include all of the
following information:
   (1) Type of offer to dedicate.
   (2) Location of property.
   (3) Expiration date of offer.
   (4) Name of entity that accepted the offer to dedicate.
   (b) It is the intent of the Legislature that the commission, the
State Coastal Conservancy, and all other appropriate public agencies
proceed with all deliberate speed to implement the provisions of this
article prior to the deadlines established in this article.



30534.  The commission shall, within 10 days after receiving
evidence of recordation of any offer to dedicate real property for
access to or along the coast, which dedication was required as a
condition to the issuance of a coastal development permit, forward a
copy of such evidence and a description of such real property to the
Department of Parks and Recreation, the State Coastal Conservancy,
and the State Lands Commission.
