The tradition of beach bonfires has been cherished for generations by San Diego residents and our visitors. On summer nights, the fires glow like a string of jewels along the City's beaches and around the shores of Mission Bay.

Coastal Commission and City Residents Help Stop the Removal of the Newport Beach Fire Pits
...We can do this too!

Corona Del Mar Today, 11/30/2009


"Fernie Sy of the California Coastal Commission said removing the fire rings would require a permit. 'We do consider the fire rings as a public amenity,' he said. 'We’d have to review the project.'", Corona Del Mar Today, 10/24/2009

"Eliminating the rings could anger the California Coastal Commission, which aims to bolster public use of oceanfront land.", Orange County Register, 10/14/2009 regarding Newport Beach

Fire pits to be removed in 2010
Mayor Sanders has announced the "final elimination" of the fire pits in the proposed 2010-2011 budget.

What can you do do stop this?

Call the City Council Now!

Really, their staff will politely answer the phone and take your comment.  Follow the link to City Hall Contacts.
If you live in the city, it's best to call your council member.  Otherwise, you can phone the Mayor's office (
619-236-6630).

Follow the links on the Left column to get more information.


The city of San Diego has set up a web page soliciting individual credit card donations to keep the fire pits alive:
http://www.sandiego.gov/philanthropycenter/opportunities/firepit.shtml

The site claims that the city will refund your money, on request, if they don't raise enough cash to save the fire pits.
(note that Save the San Diego Fire Pits has nothing to do with link above.  We are not collecting money.)
