In a 7-6 vote in front of a packed room this afternoon, the Air Quality Management District passed compromise rules on beach fire rings, allowing (most of) them to stay in place. "The rule establishes a 700-foot buffer zone between bonfires and homes and 'no-burn days' when air quality is poorer than usual, and gives cities more explicit authority to decide on a local level whether they allow fire rings within their limits. In an amendment added after the proposal was first released last month, the rule also included a paragraph that directs staff to avoid further restricting fire rings in the future." [Daily Pilot]
