Public Access

California has a long and strong tradition of ensuring that its abundant natural
and built resources remain accessible to the public. Without public watchdogs
and advocates for public access, private interests tend to seek to restrict public
access. Such restriction of access can be seen in the erection of fences and
closure of public easements for the benefit of a private interest. Barriers can be
erected for access to open space, beaches, and direct routes to public
transportation. PIAC serves as a strong advocate for preserving and opening
public access, including pursuing litigation where necessary.
