In a September 2009 article, the U-T described a dilapidated restroom in north Ocean Beach: “A restroom building on a popular stretch of sand in Ocean Beach has been fenced off because the roof is falling apart. The restrooms in question are near Dog Beach at the end of Brighton Avenue, where the sand is often occupied by people playing volleyball and the water by surfers."
Two and half years later, the restrooms are still closed and port-a-potties serve as a substitute. Last week, though, construction fencing went up around the site and, according to Kevin Faulconer's office (as told to the Peninsula Beacon), “A local construction company was ultimately selected and the restrooms are scheduled to open in time for the summer."
It has taken so long to rebuild the restrooms in part because a permit from the California Coastal Commission was required. Reconstruction was budgeted between $500,000 to $600,000, and money has been set aside for the project.
