3. COMMISSION FIELD TRIP. The Commission will take a field trip to view UCSC's proposed Coastal Long Range Development Plan (CLRDP) site at Terrace Point in Santa Cruz. The Commission will also view multiple sites in Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties along the route to and from Terrace Point. Potential sites include Fort Ord Dunes State Park, areas surrounding Castroville and Moss Landing, the proposed Caltrans Salinas Road interchange site and the Pleasure Point proposed seawall site in Live Oak (Santa Cruz County). Because space will be extremely limited, members of the public may follow in their private vehicles or meet the Commission along the route of the field trip where stops will be scheduled to discuss issues. A map of the route and an itinerary of stops for the field trip will be available at the Commission's Santa Cruz office approximately 3 to 4 days before the field trip.  For more information please call the Santa Cruz office at (831) 427-4863.
