Changes in Development Design Along California's Coast as a Result of California's Coastal Program 1973 to 1987

by Joseph E. Petrillo,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '87


California's coastal program has attempted to encourage and, where necessary, require designs which take into account a proposed development's immediate and surrounding environmental characteristics. This paper attempts to describe, where actual examples exist, the changes in development design along California's coastline as a result of the State's Coastal Program. It also attempts to evaluate the success of these endeavors, especially as they actually represent policies which have been consistently applied in practice and appear to be capable of implementation into the future.
