Connect the Coastside is a Comprehensive Transportation Management Plan that will identify programs and improvements along Hwy 1 & 92 to accommodate the Coastside’s future transportation needs as it grows toward build-out. The technical study will coincide with broad public outreach to ensure that the final Plan reflects the unique character and vision of local residents and businesses. The online Virtual Workshop is open for your ideas.

The Comprehensive Transportation Management Plan is a requirement of the 2012 Midcoast update to the Local Coastal Program (LCP Policy 2.53). In December 2013 the Board of Supervisors approved $500,000 to fund the project, which is scheduled for completion mid-2015. Scope of work and timeline.

About MCC

Midcoast Community Council is an elected Municipal Advisory Council to the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, representing Montara, Moss Beach, El Granada, Princeton, and Miramar. The Council has seven members elected by Midcoast voters to four-year terms. Councilmembers serve without compensation and without staff.  Contact MCC members.

The MCC was established in May 1991 by the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors' Resolution 55042 and approved by Midcoast voters in November 1991 with the simultaneous election of the first seven councilmembers.

Purposes of the MCC, as stated in its Bylaws:

To provide the Community with a more effective means to express its views to the County of San Mateo and other governmental agencies on matters of concern to the Community;

To contribute to the Community's awareness of issues of public import by providing a forum for discussions, and sponsoring meetings, discussions, and other events which will contribute to the general welfare, knowledge and awareness of the Community regarding such issues;

To seek to preserve the rural small-town character of the area by protecting the existence of agricultural lands, commercial fishing activities and the natural marine environment; supporting the retention of a greenbelt around urban areas of the County of San Mateo; maintaining the coastal protections afforded by the County Local Coastal Plan and Measure A (1986), and seeking to manage growth in a manner which is consistent with the present character of the area; 

To assist the Community in developing and expressing a long range vision of the Community which meets the goals of its residents for an improved quality of life, protection of the environment, and sound economic planning;

To assist the many associations, organizations, ad hoc groups and individuals of the Community, who seek to communicate with the County of San Mateo and other governmental agencies about matters of public interest, in bringing issues before the Community and in representing the Community before such governmental bodies.

To provide a vehicle for exploring the feasibility and merits of governmental organization alternatives, including but not limited to incorporation or annexation.
