La Costanera Restaurant Granted Permit for Outdoor Patio

On 9/13/18 the California Coastal Commission (CCC) approved an amendment to the popular Montara Beach restaurant’s Coastal Development Permit, allowing use of the lower patio, which was built without permits in 2008.  To mitigate for parking impacts on public beach access, a condition of approval requires the applicant to improve the adjacent State Parks informal dirt parking lot.  The parking lot improvements must be completed within two years, but the restaurant will be allowed to seat patrons on their patio immediately.         (staff report, exhibits)

Other public access improvements around the restaurant are planned for construction in the coming months, including improved public access trail, view seating areas and clear signage indicating the shared beach access parking in the restaurant lots. These were included in the consent agreement between the CCC and the property owners in March 2017, which resolved a range of long-standing Coastal Act violations at La Costanera. 

MCC has expressed concerns about the deteriorating rip-rap that was permitted by the County in 1984 to protect the restaurant from erosion. As a condition of the County Use Permit amendment for the patio a year ago, a rip-rap repair plan is required from the property owner within one year (by Oct 2018). Removal of excess view-blocking boulders from the bluff top will be considered in that assessment.

Summary of Community Housing Conversation

A detailed summary is now posted of the 7/15/18 Community Conversation on Housing.  About 90 community members attended, about half indicating they work in Half Moon Bay. The meeting format consisted of two brief informational presentations, each followed by group discussions among participants at 13 tables.

Median household income in Half Moon Bay is $106,000. About one-quarter of the community has a household income of over $200,000. Another quarter has a household income of $50,000 or less per year. About three-quarters of residents commute outside of Half Moon Bay to work. The three largest local industries are agriculture, tourism, and commercial fishing, all of which tend to skew to lower-wage jobs. The current median home price is $1.2 million, which requires a monthly mortgage payment of over $4,500. The current median rent for a one-bedroom unit is $2,600 per month. 

The second community conversation on housing is scheduled for 10/23/18.
