The beachside city of Ventura will get $16.2 million to finish a decades-old project to relocate a crumbling bike path and parking lot farther from crashing waves. Called managed retreat, the project at Surfers Point will give the shoreline room to move inland and push back the damaged path and eroding parking lot at the Ventura County Fairgrounds.

Earlier this month, the California Coastal Conservancy signed off on $16.2 million for the work, the second phase of a project that started over a decade ago. “We are really happy to see that we are finally going to get it constructed,” said Paul Jenkin, Ventura campaign coordinator at the Surfrider Foundation. He and others at Surfrider started advocating for the project back in the 1990s.
