Coastal Commission Approval of 2 Mirada Rd seawall

At the Coastal Commission meeting on July 11, 2019, they approved the seawall proposal by the residents of 2 Mirada Rd, and the Casa Mira (condominium) HOA.  There was a significant amdment, based largely on the request and comments of Surfrider to limit the seawall to not include the extension to attempt to protect the Coastal Trail, because of the precedent that would set.  The amendment passed 8-2, and the the overalll motion passed unanimously.

The staff report places significant conditions on the seawall, including removal if the 2 Mirada building is demolished or more than 50% remodeled.  Both requestors are dedicating land to public access and/or new trail location inland.  The exhibits show location and construction details.  The video of this part of the meeting  starts at 6 hours 37 minutes, and runs for about 15 minutes.

Pillar Point RV Park Public Restroom, Views, Amenities: HMB Planning Commission July 9

Half Moon Bay Planning Commission Public Hearing
Tuesday, July 9, 2019, 7:00 pm
EOC, 537 Kelly Ave, HMB

The agenda includes links to staff report, plans, and conditions of appoval. The community is encouraged to attend, learn more about this project and share their input. 

This project includes the construction of a new public restroom facility with three all-gender stalls, an outdoor shower, drinking fountains, benches, minor realignment of the Coastal Trail to provide additional buffer from the adjacent shoreline, public parking reconfiguration, and the addition of ADA parking spaces. 

Also under consideration is an after-the-fact Coastal Development Permit for the existing RV Park layout and operations which will address the many issues cataloged in the MCC 1/28/15 letter.

The RV Park was developed in 1999 without Coastal Development Permit, under long-term lease, on a Harbor District parcel that had been used for many decades as public beach parking with restroom facilities.  The public restroom, a key amenity in this popular beach area, was closed. A wall of closely planted cypress trees grew up along the highway to block public ocean views. Parking fees of $10/day were imposed on the small remaining day-use lot which lacked the amenities promised in the RV Park lease. There were attempts to legalize long-term RV stays, contrary to Coastal Act public access policies.

San Mateo County Transit District Plans and Survey

In 2018 the voters approved Measure W, a half-cent sales tax for transportation in San Mateo County.  The San Mateo County Transportation Authority will manage fifty percent of the measure. Currently, the agency is determining how to best evaluate projects so that those of greatest merit are priorities for future funding. You can learn more about the Plan including upcoming events at  Take the survey and say what matters to you! Survey closes  Aug 5, 2019 (originally June 30).

The US-101 Mobility Action Plan (MAP) is a regional, multi-agency effort to move more people with fewer cars on the US-101 corridor in San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara counties. Help us understand how you interact with US-101. This short survey has questions about how you travel along US-101 today, the mobility barriers you experience and how you might travel in the future.  Survey closes July 31.
