There will be a workshop Monday evening to discuss a proposed seven-house subdivision near Farallone View Elementary in Montara. The workshop will be in the Farallone View multipurpose room from 5:30 to 7:00pm.

A major subdivision of seven houses is proposed. This proposed subdivision would be the equivalent of a block in length and would be built on a proposed extension of Kanoff Avenue. The proposed extension would start at the tiny portion of Kanoff north of (and parallel to) Second Street. It has two houses on it. Six lots would be 7,200 sq. ft., one is 7,658 sq. ft.

This "new" portion of Kanoff Avenue would run on an angle between Farallone View Elementary School and Third Street to Le Conte Avenue. There it would join into Third Street. Third Street’s name changes to Kanoff Avenue at Le Conte. (Kanoff Avenue—also known as Third Avenue—runs for about two blocks, and then the street name changes to George Street.)

At Kanoff Avenue north of Second Street, the proposed Major Subdivision is adjacent to open space land. Locals refer to the area as "the wetlands." A portion of the new street (which is on an angle) is between Cabrillo School District Land and Third Avenue.

The purpose of the pre-application workshop is to provide for and foster early public involvement and input before the applicant submits the necessary planning applications initiating the County’s formal review process. The developer is Ken Menasco of 14366 Antone Court, San Leandro, CA 94578

A map showing the location of this proposed Major Subdivision has been provided to the Coastsider to post on the website.
