Coastal Commission Gains Power to Levy Fines

Signed into law as part of the new state budget on June 20, the Coastal Commission can now levy administrative fines against those who violate the California Coastal Act by preventing public access to coastal resources. 

Until now the Commission’s only means to enforce Coastal Act compliance was by taking violators to court, which it has limited resources to do, leading to a huge backlog of violations.  Of almost 2,000 outstanding Coastal Act violations, most involve blocking access, removing access signs, or posting unauthorized "no parking" or "no beach access" signs. 

The commission’s new ability to levy fines is limited to public-access violations.  Penalties for other violations, such as damaging wetlands or building without permits, will still require court action.

El Granada 12-Unit Apartment Bldg at Design Review June 12

Thursday, June 12, 2014, 1:00 pm
SPECIAL VENUE:  HMB Yacht Club, 214 Princeton Ave, Princeton

The proposed 3-story “Mavericks” apartment building, at corner of Coronado & Avenue Portola, was presented at a pre-application public workshop on March 25.  That 15-unit plan has been downsized to 12 units and the “affordable” units have been left out.

AGENDA:  Consideration of design review recommendation to allow construction of a 24,321 sq. ft., new 3-story, 12-unit residential apartment building on an existing 16,909 sq. ft. legal parcel, as part of a Coastal Development Permit and Grading Permit. The Coastside Design Review Committee will not render a decision, but will make a recommendation regarding the project’s compliance with design review standards. The Coastal Development Permit and Grading Permit decisions will take place at a later date. Twenty-four (24) significant trees to be removed. The project is not appealable to the California Coastal Commission.

Fitzgerald Marine Reserve Parking Lot Improvement Project

At their May 28 meeting (agenda), the County Planning Commission will consider improvements proposed for FMR parking lot at California and Lake St. (staff report).

“San Mateo County Parks Department proposes to install new stormwater management measures to slow and treat water runoff from the existing parking lot in accordance with State of California Water Resources Control Board requirements with sites identified as Areas of Special Biological Significance (ASBS). The project also involves the slight reconfiguration of the parking lot to provide two compliant ADA parking spaces, relocate four displaced spaces, and add new walkways and trail connections. The project does not involve the removal of any significant trees.”
