As the beach weather returns sun bathers at San Onofre State Beach will be facing enforcement against nudists. There is a disagreement on whether the beach should allow nudity. The California Court of Appeal decided that the Cahil Policy was not a valid measure because it had not been passed through proper procedures for approval. That policy meant that nudity was allowed unless there was a citizen complaint to authorities who could then cite the nudist. There are those that argue that the policy is valid and officials should not be able to cite beach goers without swim wear. Over the weekend there were two people cited for nudity at the beach. It was estimated that the ticket, including fees would be roughly $500. State park officials explain that they have been informing the public they will start issuing citations and that the public has had ample warning of the new policies. The pro nude beach groups intend to work on keeping San Onofre clothing optional. A person found in violation of the nudity law could be cited under various municipal code sections and subject to incarceration and/or fines.
