6/24/12 MCC special meeting AGENDA is for the purpose of discussing the County's TA draft grant application for Highway 1 improvements.  5:00 pm at Granada Sanitary District meeting room, 504 Alhambra, 3rd Floor, El Granada.



County seeks grant for Hwy 1 improvements

On the Board of Supervisors' consent agenda 6/26/12 is a resolution in support of submittal of a grant application for $5million to San Mateo County Transportation Authority for projects on Highway 1 in the Midcoast. The grant would be used for designs and construction of raised medians, left-turn lanes and safe crossings that were identified in the Highway 1 Safety & Mobility Study.

UPDATE 6/28/12:  The item was removed from consent for public comment asking for continued public input in final design stages and Supervisor Horsley voicing support for that. The final amount of the grant request was reduced to $1.5million, to cover preliminary planning, environmental reviews, and other costs up to but not including construction, which funds would be applied for later.

Board of Supervisors considers ballot measure to decide countywide or district elections

At their meeting Tues, June 26, the Board of Supervisors will reconsider putting to the voters in November the decision whether to elect supervisors countywide or by district.  The county is currently defending a lawsuit that claims the County Charter’s method of electing members of the Board of Supervisors “at-large” violates the California Voting Rights Act as to voters of Asian and Latino descent.

UPDATE 6/28/12:  Board of Supervisors approved the Ordinance submitting to the eligible registered voters at the November 6, 2012 election the question of whether they wish to amend the San Mateo County Charter to change the manner of electing members of the Board of Supervisors from an “at-large” to a “by-district” system.
