Coastal parking fees
EDITOR: The proposal to charge for the parking on the Sonoma Coast is appalling (“Pushing for beach fees,” Tuesday). There are places where I have paid to enter for decades, and I have been glad to do it. To charge for mere parking and a garbage can is an unacceptable response to the parks budget. Doran Beach, Wright’s Beach, etc. are fine with me for charging. But I would like to say something about Bodega Head and other “parking” spots.
Those are also the resting place of many loved ones. You cannot as a civilized person charge someone to grieve a loved one’s last resting place, even be it ashes. Fire everyone involved with this sickening scheme.
Besides, how many millions are being spent to study our coast? I remember studying it in college in the 1970s. Can we take a portion of the multi-millions in study money and have someone pick up the trash? Otherwise, no dice. They will fail.
