Pillar Point Harbor Pollution Source Investigation Update Feb 21

SMC Resource Conservation District (RCD) will provide an update presentation on their investigations of upland sources of bacterial contamination in Pillar Point Harbor, including the integrity and mapping of nearby sewage and stormwater pipes.

San Mateo County Harbor District meeting 
Feb 21, 2018, 6:30pm
(agenda)
504 Ave Alhambra, second floor, El Granada

Can't make the meeting? PDF of presentation is posted and video [at 26 min] will be available within 24-48 hours of the meeting.

Since 2002, Pillar Point Harbor has been included on a statewide list of contaminated water bodies due to its high concentrations of fecal indicator bacteria, which can come from any warm-blooded animal.  2008 RCD Pollution Study indicated the source of pollution was from upland areas via creeks and stormwater outfalls. RCD, in partnership with the Harbor District, continues to monitor harbor water quality and pursue investigation of upland sources.

County/GCSD Reach Permit Agreement for Recreation on Granada Medians 

San Mateo County and Granada Community Services District have negotiated a Permit Agreement, which authorizes GCSD to make specified park and recreation improvements to the Granada plazas and medians shown in the Permit.  Approved improvements include benches, children’s tree houses, children’s nature play areas, fencing for safety, fitness/exercise-stations, horse shoes, picnic tables, pump tracks, softball pitch and catch, spider-web rope net climbing equipment, swings and/or swing sets, tree maintenance and other landscaping, walking path improvements, water fountains, and youth basketball half court. 

GCSD will be responsible for maintaining all trees and vegetation on the plazas and medians where improvements are constructed. GCSD will maintain liability insurance and hold the County harmless from any claims stemming from public use.

Harbor District Embarks on 2018 Strategic Planning Process

At the helm to facilitate the SMC Harbor District Strategic Planning process is Martin Rauch of Rauch Communication Consultants, Inc. (9/6/17 slide presentation).  The process has begun with the first of two Board Workshops (1/24/18 - video) to evaluate the district and identify strategic issue areas.  Those meetings will be followed by public outreach (stakeholder interviews and public workshops), followed by preparation of draft report, monitoring and oversight plan and presentation to the Board of Commissioners for adoption.

MCC will closely follow this process and help spread the word on public workshops.  Several years ago the District started and then abandoned a strategic planning effort, on which MCC submitted initial comments 7/9/14. See also MCC Pillar Point Harbor page.

HMB Seeks Funding for Cabrillo Hwy Bike/Ped Trail Connection to Midcoast

The City of Half Moon Bay is submitting grant applications to San Mateo County Transportation Authority (SMCTA) to help fund connecting segments of the bike/pedestrian trail along the east side of Cabrillo Highway to the northern city limit at Mirada/Alto Roads.  San Mateo County is finalizing the design/permitting process for the first Midcoast segment of this Cabrillo Hwy Trail (Mirada Rd to Coronado signal – orange dots on map).

County Long-Range Planning Projects: 2018-19

Long-range planning efforts involve studies, plans and regulations, rather than actual projects to be built.  The County Planning Dept has an ambitious list of planning projects for 2018-2019, most of them countywide or specific to North Fair Oaks: Work Plan (You'll need a large monitor to view this.)

Plans specific for the Coastside include:

  • Connect the Coastside wrap up winter/spring 2018 (begun in 2014 but stalled since 2016).
  • Plan Princeton wrap up by end summer 2018 (begun in 2013 but stalled since 2015).
  • Farm Labor Housing Guidebook.
  • Cypress Point Affordable Housing is listed here, covering only the General Plan, Zoning Ordinance and Local Coastal Program amendments required to downsize the land use to medium density and do away with the 148-unit approved PUD district.

Regarding MCC request for updated Neighborhood Commercial development standards specific for the Midcoast (3/22/17 MCC letter - presentation  - reply - 4/12/17 follow-up letter), and a consistent definition of how building height is measured (11/8/17 MCC letter), the County has relegated these to a wish list of future but unscheduled projects, due to the busy workload prioritized for the next two years.
