54090. As used in this article "public beach" means any beach area
used for recreational purposes which is owned, operated or controlled
by the State, any state agency or any local agency.



54091. Any city, county or other local agency which owns, operates,
or controls any public beach shall allow the use of such public
beach by all persons regardless of color, race, religion, ancestry,
sex, national origin, or residence. Nonresidents of the city,
county, or other local agency shall be permitted to use such public
beach upon the same terms and conditions as are residents of such
city, county, or local agency.



54092. Any city, county or other local agency which allows any
property owned, operated or controlled by it to be used as a means of
access to any public beach shall allow free access over such
property to all persons regardless of color, race, religion,
ancestry, sex, national origin or residence.



54093. The Department of Parks and Recreation, on behalf of the
state, may acquire by appropriate means easements in property owned,
operated or controlled by any city, county or other local agency in
order to provide free public access to any public beach. However,
any such easement shall terminate if the property is developed by the
city, county or other public agency in a manner which would not be
compatible with the use of such easement for access purposes and if
the city, county or other public agency refunds to the state the
amount of money the state paid for such easement.
