Letter to the Editor

In planning for the future, I urge the Richmond general plan to include protecting the shoreline for the sake of the planet and for the general health of the folks who live in and around Richmond.
I was lucky to grow up in a small beach town in Orange County. I am grateful my mother and other residents fought to keep the beaches and much of the land near it for the public. If they hadn’t, it would have been be a disaster.
Such a disaster could happen to Richmond unless city planners realize the value of the shore and protect it.
