July 29, 2014, is NOW a historic date in the history of Ocean Beach—The San Diego City Council approved a long-awaited update to the Ocean Beach Community Plan, which addresses issues like zoning and neighborhood character for our unique beach town. The update plan, 12-years in the making, was given a unanimous go-ahead to preserve O.B. as one of the last small beach towns in S. CA. Residents who spoke approved of O.B.’s smaller scale and railed against the kind of vacation rental development seen along M.B. amd P.B.’s boardwalk. Retaining the historical cottages was also a key point.
