Plan Princeton Proceeds Apace

Plan Princeton “Existing Conditions Report” is now available and will be presented to the Planning Commission at their May 28 meeting.

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.”


Green Streets Improvement Project at Moss Beach Post Office

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
