California Coastal Commission Zone Boundaries

The coastal zone, which was specifically mapped by the Legislature, covers an area larger than the State of Rhode Island. On land the coastal zone varies in width from several hundred feet in highly urbanized areas up to five miles in certain rural areas, and offshore the coastal zone includes a three-mile-wide band of ocean.

This data was downloaded from the CalTrans GIS Data Library, which is a valuable resource for this and other data.
