The results of the county's survey of Midcoast residents' recreation priorities in June 2001.

The county Parks Department will hold a series of meetings on the Midcoast to discuss the development of an implementation plan for Midcoast parks.

At the meetings, the county will be looking for two members from each Midcoast community (Montara, Moss Beach, Princeton, and El Granada) to service on the planning committee, which will also include representatives from Half Moon Bay Parks & Recreation Commission, Cabrillo Unified School District, Midcoast Community Council, and Midcoast Parklands.  The county hopes to have the planning team established by the end of January.

The planning team will "help synthesize public input and prepare for public meetings".  The public meetings will begin in February, completing by July a prioritized implementation plan, an implementation organization, and funding sources.

In October 2002, the San Mateo County Parks Department completed a Mid-Coast Recreational Needs Assessment

On December 18, 2006, San Mateo County Parks Department held a public meeting at Seton Hospital to outline a process for completing an implementation plan to provide for the Midcoast’s recreational needs. [PowerPoint presentation and meeting notes from County]

The Mid-Coast Recreation and Parks Planning Group has the following low volume email list to announce meetings and report status of the planning process.

The email list is set up by me, Lee. If you have difficulty subscribing then contact me through my member profile here on

I don’t know about the rest of your renderings but,“Drawings - El Granada” cannot be viewed - message states “Damaged - Cannot Be Reapired” - can you please fix it/others so that the Tax-Paying Homeowners in the Mid-Coast can see what proposals this group has drummed up to date?

Where was the notice for the Public Meeting set for this Thursday, 3/29/07 @ 7:00 p.m. at Harbor House in Princeton published?

Thanks, Barb Mauz
