The end of an era begins on Monday at Haskell’s Beach, as the State Lands Commission, in collaboration with the City of Goleta, starts work to remove the pier and caisson structures known as PRC 421-1 and 421-2. It’s a process that will take up to six months, during which time sections of the beach may close temporarily to keep the public safe during the operations. The beach will remain open otherwise.
