Commission recommends historic tag for Trestles

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A state commission has decided to recommend that a stretch of the northern San Diego County coast known as Trestles be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The State Historic Preservation Commission voted unanimously Friday to approve a request by the Orange County-based Surfrider Foundation. The Navy and Marine Corps opposed the move.

The Los Angeles Times reports the surfers hope that giving Trestles the special designation will protect it from any development that might disrupt the site as a famous surf break.

A portion of Trestles is owned by the Department of Defense. Another stretch has been used by the Marines for amphibious assault training since World War II.

The Times says Camp Pendleton officials are concerned that listing the area as historic could limit access to the beach.
