Apr 7, 2022 - California Energy Commission hearing - Today the commission voted unanimously to reject the National Park Services’s (NPS) climate and water quality action plan, and work with NPS, staff, and the water board to make a better plan returning by September. Commissioner Mike Wilson said NPS should really hire a consultant to write this plan. Other commissioners said the plan was inadequate, and "not competent" done in house. This no vote does not, however, cause a rejection of the original Conditional Determination to allow the Seashore's controversial General management Plan amendment to go forward.
On Thursday, the California Coast Commission (CCC) unanimously rejected the National Park Service’s (NPS) “First-Year Water Quality Strategy and Climate Action Plan,” for Point Reyes National Seashore. One year ago, the Commission, by one vote, approved a controversial General Management Plan Amendment (GMPA) for the Point Reyes National Seashore on the condition that NPS come up with a “strategy” to fix the water pollution and greenhouse gases spewing from private cattle operations in the national park. It gave the Park Service one year to do so. To the surprise of exactly no one, the NPS failed to follow through.

The California Coastal Commission (CCC) made a Consistency Determination about whether Point Reyes National Seashore's proposed General Management Plan amendment meets state water laws.
