Romeo Pier 1940’s - 2018

The distant view of Romeo Pier is a rustic reminder of the bygone sardine fishing/cannery era in Princeton by the Sea. The reality revealed in close up, however, is a long-neglected, badly deteriorated relic that has been falling piece by piece into the harbor for years, with the inevitable collapse possible in the next big storm. In 2013, MCC raised concerns about an imminent marine debris disaster. The Harbor District has obtained permits and contracted for pier removal during June 2018 at a cost of $2.3 million. See District pier demo page for ongoing updates.)

When Romeo Packing switched from fish-based to chemical fertilizer in the 1970’s, the Harbor District began leasing the pier, and then purchased it outright in 1996 for $185,000, even though they did not own land access.  At the same time the District decided NOT to buy the half-acre boatyard on Princeton shoreline for $200,000. The same Harbor Commission 3-2 majority prevailed on both votes. Only two years later, in 1998, Romeo Pier was permanently closed as unsafe, with decking collapsing and many pilings no longer reaching the ground.

Midcoast Design Standards Study Session 6/7/18

Coastside Design Review Committee (CDRC)
Special Meeting: Open Study Session
to discuss revision of Midcoast Design Standards
June 7 - 10:30am – 1pm   --    Agenda
504 Ave Alhambra, third floor, El Granada

The Midcoast has a coastal, semi-rural, small town, diverse character that residents value and want to preserve. The purpose of the Midcoast Design Standards is to encourage new single-family homes and additions that have their own individual character, while ensuring that they are complementary with neighboring houses, the neighborhood character of each Midcoast community, and the surrounding natural setting.

CDRC members are appointed by the Board of Supervisors to review new development in the unincorporated communities of Montara, Moss Beach, El Granada, Princeton, and Miramar, for compliance with the Midcoast Design Standards.
