Historical General Plans

1962 Midcoastside Preliminary General Plan (map)
consisted of 5 communities: Montara-Moss Beach, El Granada, West HMB, East HMB, and Purisima. Each community would contain at full development from 20,000 to 30,000 residents, for a Coastside total of 100,000 to 150,000. By 1980 population of each community was expected to be 13,000 to 18,000.

Highway 1 and 92 were planned as freeways (up to 8 lanes). Highway 1 in the north would turn inland at the airport and cross over the mountain to Pacifica. To the south along HMB, the freeway would be routed much closer to the coast. Expressways (up to 6 lanes) would carry inter-community traffic. There was even a parkway proposed on Pillar Point Bluff.

Developer Henry Doelger's vision for the Midcoast - 1965

Montara - Moss Beach - El Granada  Community Plan 1978

In 1972, people throughout the State of California were growing increasingly concerned with uncontrolled growth and loss of access to their coastline and beaches, and took the matter to the ballot box. Proposition 20, the Coastal Initiative, passed overwhelmingly. 

Midcoast residents organized to prevent the grandiose development plans promoted by Westinghouse and other speculators. They determined to create their own plan with sensibility toward the environment and a vision for reasonable, planned growth that the limited resources of the Coast could accommodate. 

Over a 5-year period in the 1970's, Midcoast residents, with the aid of County planners, created the Montara - Moss Beach - El Granada Community Plan, which the Board of Supervisors adopted in 1978. The Commuity Plan formed the basis and is incorporated by reference into San Mateo County's Local Coastal Program (LCP) adopted in 1980. 

The only update to the Community Plan was amended road policies and standards in 1994. The LCP underwent a 12-year update process which was certified by the Coastal Commission in 2012.
