Abstract: In some states or regions public access to the shoreline can be mandated through a Commission created by Legislation, as in the San Francisco Bay. This situation, however, is not the norm. This paper is an example of how citizens of one city forced the issue of obtaining a number of permanent accessways to the river's edge that must remain in a public trust forever.
