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.

Plan Princeton “Existing Conditions Report” is now available and will be presented to the Planning Commission at their May 28 meeting. This completes the second phase of the planning update project. The first phase was the Community Visioning Report.
The next project phase will include a public workshop late this summer for the community to discuss, analyze, and comment on the conceptual alternatives prior to developing a preferred Princeton area land use plan.
“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.”
At their May 28 meeting (agenda), the County Planning Commission will consider improvements proposed for the east side of Carlos St. in the Moss Beach Post Office block. The project involves construction of ~340 linear feet of bioretention swales, parking, bicycle, and pedestrian safety improvements. The Staff Report includes detailed design plans to see what the project will look like, and photos that explain where the area stormwater flows. The motivation for the project is to reduce pollutants in stormwater runoff before they reach the Marine Reserve. Learn more about the Fitzgerald ASBS Pollution Reduction Program here.

County Parks is planning two pilot vegetation management projects at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve:
1) San Vicente Creek habitat enhancement to remove exotic invasive plants and replant native vegetation, and
2) Cypress grove management to improve public safety.
Both projects are envisioned as being completed before December 2014. The purpose of this meeting is to inform the community about the project goals and timeline, and listen to input before the permit approval process is initiated.

The National Park Service NPS) is developing an Interim Trail Plan for Rancho Corral de Tierra (Rancho). This interim plan maps and names the trails that will be maintained by NPS until a Long-Range Trail Master Plan is completed in the next three to five years. The plan establishes accepted trail uses (bicycle, pedestrian, equestrian) to help mitigate conflicts between user groups. It does not regulate dog walking activities and defers to the Dog Management Plan.
The public comment period is open through June 14. To view the plan and comment, go to (web link).
