7th St Coastal Access Appeal Apr 28 at Board of Supervisors

An appeal of a new encroaching fence permit at the coastal end of 7th Street, Montara, will be heard by the Board of Supervisors April 28, at 9:00 AM,      400 County Center, Redwood City.
(staff report - appendices)

Last February the Planning Commission approved a pair of permits to remove the view-blocking wall across the end of 7th St, but allowing a new private fence within the public right-of-way which would effectively add 300 sq.ft. of coastal bluff to the neighboring property owner's front yard.

Prior post. Coastal access issues page. Online petition.

UPDATE:  April 28 appeal hearing was continued at request of Supervisor Horsley to pursue a proposed compromise on placement of new encroaching fence.  Comments from public: Lisa Ketcham - slidesDave Olson

UPDATE 9/24/15:  Supervisor Horsley's office announced that the applicant has agreed to the proposed compromise and revised their application for new fence encroachment on 7th St.  The appeal is expected to be heard by the Board of Supervisors on October 20, 2015. The net effect of the permits will be the entire 6-ft wall across the coastal end of 7th St. will be removed, and a new 4-ft-high wire mesh fence encroaching approximately 5 feet into the right-of-way will be installed next to existing residential landscaping along the front of the property at 101 7th St.

Coastal Sediment Management Draft Plan Available for Review

Coastal Regional Sediment (sand) Management Plans (CRSMP) are being developed for specific portions of the coast (littoral cells).  The program seeks to present ways to restore and preserve beaches, reduce the proliferation of protective shoreline structures, sustain recreation and tourism, enhance public safety and access, restore coastal sandy habitats, and identify cost-effective solutions for restoration of areas impacted by excess sediment.  

Santa Cruz Littoral Cell CRSMP includes the coastline from Pillar Point to Moss Landing (including Pillar Point Harbor). The DRAFT PLAN (80MB) has been released for public review April 15 - May 15, 2015.
Comments, suggested edits, general feedback, etc. may be sent to Brad.Damitz@noaa.gov.

There is an Executive Summary here if you don't want to dive right into the 300-page document.
