Community Plan

The Ocean Beach Community Plan and Local Coastal Program is the official community plan for Ocean Beach. It is associated with the City of San Diego General Plan and applies to the entire Ocean Beach Community Plan Area (map).

On January 14, 2016, the California Coastal Commission issued its final certification of the new Ocean Beach Community Plan, placing it officially in effect throughout Ocean Beach. This final step marked the culmination of over 10 years of hard work by the community, the Precise Plan Update Committee, and City staff. The Ocean Beach Planning Board extends its sincere congratulations and appreciation to everyone who worked toward this milestone.
