Coastal Commission Stalls on Power Plant Proposal

By Coastal Commission Stalls on Power Plant Proposal

The Ventura County Star today reports that California Coastal Commission has postponed a decision on whether to allow a proposed 45-megawatt peaker power plant at Mandalay Beach in Oxnard.  Among those who voiced their opposition to the much-needed power plant was — not surprisingly — Commissioner Sara Wan, who stated in typical authoritarian fashion:

"This area has miles of unbelievable coastal resources — beaches, dunes, wetlands … we don't need another plant like this on the coast."

The latest example of an out-of-touch, arrogant bureaucrat deciding what people do and do not "need."

The Coastal Commission will take up consideration of the project at its October meeting in Ventura.
