The California Coastal Commission
Liquefied Natural Gas files contain reports, correspondence, court records, newspaper
clippings and miscellaneous files relating to liquefied natural gas (LNG) sites proposed by
several public utility companies in 1972. The California Coastal Commission was created
through the California Coastal Act to prevent the privatization of California's beaches
through the regulation of land and water use in the coast. At the time of the LNG proposals
the California Coastal Commission was the state authority for approving and permitting
rights for LNG terminals.
The California Coastal Commission was established by voter initiative in 1972 to identify
and prevent ecological and environmental dangers threatening California's coastal landscape
and to protect coastal land from privatization. Since the California Legislature passed the
California Coastal Act of 1976, the Coastal Commission has planned and regulated the use of
land and water in the coastal zone through reviews of local and federal government programs
