Focus Topics 

The County is developing a Comprehensive Transportation Management Plan (CTMP) to address cumulative traffic impacts of Midcoast residential development on Highway 1 & 92.  Based on an analysis of traffic impacts at buildout, specific policies will be developed to offset the demand for all peak period vehicle trips generated by new residential development.  The plan will evaluate expanded public transit, bike/ped facilities, and programs for traffic mitigation fees on new development, and mandatory lot merger and lot retirement. Project planner is James Hinkamp

Midcoast California Coastal Trail


November 2013 MCC Presentation & Letter to County Parks re CA Coastal Trail - Pillar Point to Montara Lighthouse


The Midcoast CCT Committee is the working group addressing this issue.  The specific objective is creating a Midcoast CA Coastal trail map as a concept plan to be reviewed by the public and appropriate agencies then presenting the plan to the Board of Supervisors for approval.  The picture to the right identifies the segment of the trail being addressed by this committee.  Related CCT segments are also identified.


Devil's Slide Coast
Several agencies have created a combined area referred to as the Devil's Slide Coast.  The Midcoast section of the CCT is a part of this area.
