In a strategic effort to engage with the entire county of Santa Cruz and ensure our coastal access points are truly open to all, a Municipal Access Partnership Permit (MAPP) will be implemented in 2024. Alongside the current standing commercial Surf School Concessionaire Program this new MAPP will be introduced and awarded in a separate application system to additional non-profit groups for similar services. Through the Pilot Program the Department will award up to three (3) non-profit agencies a MAPP.
Please email Sarah at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
