On Tuesday, the city council approved funding that it will re-open Point Molate beach—the city’s only public beach. The beach closed in 2004 due to budget cuts and then was slammed in 2007 by the Cosco Busan fuel spill. The public space has been under lock and key ever since. In anticipation of the beach’s re-opening, we thought it would be fun to see what the area looks like today.
The 40 or so people who gathered Wednesday to discuss alternatives to the Indian casino development plan at Point Molate appeared to have more frustrations so far than new ideas.
Richmond residents applauded a plan that will allow voters to say whether they approve a proposed plan to build an Indian casino at Point Molate this November, although the vote won’t be legally binding.
