Mid-Pen Housing: Community Outreach on Moss Beach 11-Acre Site

Local non-profit MidPen Housing held an Open House at Farallone View School March 16 to collect community input and answer questions about a potential affordable housing development at the 11-acre former Navy barracks site at Carlos/Sierra in Moss Beach (handout). Most of the large crowd in attendance was organized with signs/stickers opposing high density housing and increased traffic congestion. Their spokesperson's address  opposed any development on the site, urging its preservation as a park. 

MidPen is considering a potential affordable housing development on the site, which could give preference to residents with Coastside jobs. The site would be developed at the same medium density as the surrounding neighborhood, even though the zoning allows for medium-high density. Instead of the 148-unit mixed affordable/market-rate project approved for this site in 1986, MidPen proposes no more than 80 units, with all rental units affordable to families earning 30-60% of county median income (currently $103,000 for family of four). The one- and two-story duplexes and triplexes would be clustered so that a significant portion of the site could be dedicated to permanent open space. MidPen is committed to community outreach and engagement to craft a thoughtful proposal that is compatible with the surrounding neighborhood. See MidPen presentation at MCC Feb 10, and background/related info on MCC Affordable Housing page. MidPen's contact for questions/comments is Felix AuYeung, fauyeung@midpen-housing.org.

Coastal Assets Chosen for Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Profiles

Sea Change San Mateo County has selected 30 assets to receive an Asset Vulnerability Profile (AVP). Included are:

Fitzgerald Marine Reserve (rocky intertidal)
Mirada Road (road, Coastal Trail, restaurant/inn)
California Coastal Trail
HMB Landfill (closed)
SAM Wastewater Treatment Plant
Highway 1 at Surfers’ Beach 

AVP’s will describe an asset’s function or service, along with the sensitivity of the asset and its function to flood depth and duration. The AVP will also characterize the adaptive capacity of that asset, and will discuss the potential consequences (economic, social/equity, environmental, or otherwise) that could result from its loss. Following asset manager questionnaires and interviews, a draft AVP will be available for public review and comment period.
