The Avila Beach Pier is closed for repairs after Port San Luis Harbor Facilities Manager Loch Dreizler noticed it swaying when a large group of people gathered to whale-watch at the end of the pier.
The Port San Luis Harbor District has hired the public relations firm Studio Good to work on fundraising options to raise money for repairs. Dreizler and Harbor Manager Andrea Lueker said the project may cost approximately $12.5 million.
Lueker said she thinks the project will be exciting and interesting to take on. Meanwhile, the Harford Pier and Avila Beach remain open to the public.
Laura Hoover went to the pier to see how students and community members are responding to the closure.
