Members of the Gaviota Coast Planning Advisory Committee (GavPAC) are getting the band back together, so to speak, to address a list of modifications that the California Coastal Commission has made to the group’s Gaviota Coast Plan, a long-range planning document approved by county supervisors in 2016 after seven years of stakeholder input. Essentially, commission staffers want closer oversight of farming and ranching operations ​— ​particularly near creeks and endangered-species habitat ​— ​and would require permits for activities exempted in the plan. County supervisors on Tuesday voted to withdraw the plan, address commission concerns at a July 3 GavPAC workshop, and resubmit the document for commission review in August.
