County of Orange to Remove Its Name from Sunset Beach Sign


If the County of Orange gets its wish, its name will be taken off the wooden plaque as you enter Sunset Beach from Pacific Coast Highway at Warner Ave.  While the sign announces in huge letters, "SUNSET BEACH", the smaller words below it are the point of contention.


In 2009 the County looked for ways to reduce its costly assets and debts. One was to remove unincorporated towns from the the books by placing them into local areas of influence that other cities would be best suited to take over. Sunset Beach was assigned to be taken over by Huntington Beach, but residents weren't all pleased with that decision.


First order of business was to see if Seal Beach had any interest in taking the 1-mile stretch of oceanfront homes and businesses along Pacific Coast Highway, and calling it its own. Seal Beach said no. As of this posting, the City of Huntington Beach could become the proud owner of 1000 residents, many coastal businesses, and some prime beach oceanfront, that would expand the city's claim to include nearly 10 miles of beaches, instead of 8.5 miles. That would be a great bragging right.
