Sunny Cove Beach available 10/21/10 6:45am TDH

Santa Cruz County Supervisors could move to acquire a small portion of the beach at the end of 17th avenue, after the property owners offered to give the land to the county.   Sunny Cove Beach, in Live Oak, has been enjoyed by locals for years, however it is on private property.   Santa Cruz County Supervisor John Leoplod is pushing to acquire the property to ensure that no future owner tries to restrict public use.   The current owners’ offer to donate the land means that the acquisition should not cost the county much money, as parks crews and sheriff’s deputies already work the adjacent areas.
