Newport Beach Statement on the State's Reopening of Neighboring City Beaches
On Saturday the City of Newport Beach submitted a plan with the State to safely reopen the Newport Beach coastline. We have been closely coordinating with Huntington Beach about strategies to enhance the management of our beaches.
Despite repeated attempts by City staff to connect with State officials, we have not yet received any information on an approval or modifications, or when a decision might be made.
In light of the State’s announcements for Laguna Beach and San Clemente, Huntington Beach, Seal Beach and Dana Point, we hope to hear from State authorities shortly on whether Newport Beach will join other Orange County cities in a safe, coordinated approach to reopening the beaches.
