ISLA VISTA, Calif. - Plans are underway to cut back an Isla Vista apartment house due to erosion.

It is located in the 6700 block of Del Playa Drive.

Erosion has wiped out some of the coastal foundation putting the balcony at risk of coming down.

The county is working with the property owner on a plan to take out some of the ocean front patio and build a new safety barrier.

The emergency permit is going to the State Coastal Commission later this month.

Once everything has been approved, the work will have to take place within 30 days.

A special monitor will be on the beach during the work to keep people from walking under the project.

All debris will have to be cleaned up as it comes down.
