Our mission is to protect and defend the rural and residential character, and to preserve the natural and aesthetic beauty of the Big Sur coast; to provide for the health, safety, and welfare of the Big Sur Community as well as to encourage community service and otherwise act in the interests of the residents and property owners of Big Sur. We identify activities that our board can undertake to fulfill our mission. An example is a new program, the Big Share, a collaboration with founders Helen Handshy and Joseph Bradford, addressing food insecurity in our community.
