Leaders celebrate state funds for Coastside beaches

With sweeping ocean views and a check in hand that was large both literally and figuratively, state and local leaders celebrated at what will be the trailhead to the Tunitas Creek Beach County Park on Friday.

The gathering commemorated the state’s allocation of $6 million to increase the public’s access to “coastal treasures” Tunitas Creek Beach and Martin’s Beach. Gov. Jerry Brown signed the state budget on Wednesday.
