Goleta Beach

VC Lipman Interviewed
Goleta Beach is under attack and our chapter Vice Chair Everett Lipman speaks out in a story featured in the Santa Barbara Independent.

In the article, “Lipman said he photographs the beach weekly, documenting its disappearance in front of the rock barricades. He opposed the emergency permits, telling the commission that the county “failed to identify any structures of significant value that are in imminent danger.” Moreover, Lipman stated, “’Typical winter conditions cannot, by any reasonable standard, be considered an emergency.’”
