A Bolinas Beach No Camping Advisory Vote, Measure H ballot proposition will be on the November 3, 2009 ballot in Marin County for voters in the Bolinas Community Public Utility District.[1]

The question on the ballot will be, "Shall the Bolinas Community Public Utility District request a County Ordinance which prohibits camping on the Bolinas Beach full time and year round?"


Bruce Bowser, a former secretary for the Bolinas Beach Committee, supports Measure H. He says that Bolinas is the only private beach that allows public camping and that "visitor" campers and the homeless are camping on the beaches.

Bowser also said that the current county ordinance that prohibits camping on weekends and holidays is ineffective and loosely enforced and, as a result, the beach is being soiled with human waste and beach fires are creating a hazard.[1]


Magi Barror, the district's appointed Beach Committee Chairwoman, say that Measure H is not necessary because:

  • Problems have been reduced.
  • There are fewer campers now because of the existing weekend ban.
  • Campers do not cause most of the problems.[1]
