Coastal Commission. Please Explain.

Anyone out there want to explain what this says and what it encompasses? This is one paragraph out of 95 pages of similar Orwellian Speak.
The Coastal Commission is attempting to restructure the California coast to what they think it should look like, damn the torpedoes and all speed ahead.
Beware. Be scared
Be very scared

From the Residential Adaptation Policy Guidance (RAPG)

"B.8 Nonconforming Structures in Areas Subject to Coastal Hazards When proposed development would involve redevelopment of an existing structure that is legally non-conforming due to a coastal resource protection standard, the entire structure must be made to conform with all current coastal resource protection standards and policies of the LCP and, if applicable, the Coastal Act. Non-exempt improvements to existing non-conforming structures, regardless if the proposed improvements meet the threshold of redevelopment, shall not be permitted when the improvements increase the degree of non-conformity of the existing structure by, for example, increasing the hazardous condition, developing seaward, or increasing the size of the structure in a non-conforming location."

I can explain what it says. "Pacifica, we have written so much legalese into this document that we, The Truly One and Only Power in California, The Coastal Commissars" can do anything we want in your pathetic hamlet."
See, simple!

I can understand it. What's the problem?

We'll make the language so ambiguous that we can interpret it any way we like.

I can't wait until we get the dog and pony shows for our general plan and specific plans. Better than the foo-foo dog show over there in Britain.

This is really all BS. Start every document with "Do no harm". That would be a good start.

It's not ambiguous.
