Experience News in a New Way
Some new public restrooms at Santa Monica’s beaches are causing a stir because of their huge price tag.
The seven bathroom facilities built at strategic points along the beach cost taxpayers almost $5 million, records from the Department of Public Works show.
Each of the seven units has 14 stalls, putting the cost per stall at a staggering $50,700.
An eighth bathroom at 2400 Ocean Front Walk has not yet been completed, after neighbors complained about the design proposal.
