SECTION 31050-31056

lands located within the coastal zone contribute substantially to the
state and national food supply and are a vital part of the state's
economy.

lands located within the coastal zone should be protected from
intrusion of nonagricultural uses, except where conversion to urban
or other uses is in the long-term public interest.




31052.  The Legislature further finds and declares that lands within
the coastal zone, principally in rural areas, are vacant or

and reduce opportunities for orderly development.



31053.  The Legislature further finds and declares that important
fish and wildlife habitat, natural areas, and scenic and

incompatible land uses.

Legislature to provide for the State Coastal Conservancy, which
should report to the Governor and to the Legislature, with
responsibility for implementing a program of agricultural protection,
