Dear Big Sur Community Members and Stakeholders,
We hope that all of you, and your families, are staying safe and healthy in these challenging times due to the Coronavirus. Although public health advisories in California and elsewhere have resulted in disruptions to daily schedules and planning, we want to let you know that the Beyond Green Travel team continues to move forward working on the Big Sur Sustainable Tourism Destination Stewardship Plan (DSP).
Among the most important goals is to continue to collect feedback and comments from the Big Sur community. Given the need to adjust to new public health protocols, including avoiding public meetings and gatherings, we are extending the timeframe for completing the Big Sur Residents Survey to allow more residents of Big Sur the opportunity to complete it. We are happy to report that we have received 306 completed surveys to date and we hope to receive more, so if you have not yet filled out the survey, please do so soon. Here are the links in both English and Spanish. The survey will remain available until March 27:
In addition, we wish to remind everyone that the Big Sur Destination Stewardship Plan comment website, www.bigsurdsp.com, remains open 24/7 to provide an easy way for you to share your thoughts, recommendations and ideas for how to better manage visitation to Big Sur for the future as part of the DSP multi-stakeholder process.
We wish you a healthy and enjoyable Spring season – a time for nature’s renewal and an inspiration for better days to come.
Costas Christ & The Beyond Green Travel Team
