There are openings on several County government citizen committees.

Coastside Design Review Committee

CDRC has several vacancies, for Midcoast residents, and for a licensed architect or landscape architect (who may reside anywhere in San Mateo County). The Committee reviews residential planning applications for compliance with the Midcoast Residential Design Standards. The MCC adopted a list of Desirable Traits for a CDRC member. Committee members are appointed by the Board of Supervisors. CDRC meets on the second Thursday of most months at 1:30 pm in the Midcoast. To apply, contact Alicia Garcia at (650) 363-4634. Application forms can be submitted online or by mail. For more information about CDRC contact Lisa Aozasa at 650-363-4852.

County Housing & Community Development Committee

HCDC is a citizen committee which provides recommendations on grant funding allocations to help develop and improve viable communities by providing decent housing and suitable living environments and expanding economic opportunities principally for persons of very low to moderate income.  There is an open position representing the unincorporated county area -- Midcoast residents are encouraged to apply.  Contact Denise Milner, 650-802-5048.  

MCC Committees and Work Groups

In order to be most effective, the MCC needs community members to become involved and work on local issues. Come to MCC meetings and/or contact MCC members to offer your energy and expertise in the area of your interest.
