MidCoast Community Council meeting on Aug 24, 2011 at Seton Coastside, 7:30 pm.


By on Tue, August 23, 2011


In response to some calls and emails on this week’s MCC Agenda, I will give a little more information on the Regular Agenda items.  But before I do, I want to let everyone know that there were problems with the server on which our web pages reside. However, agendas were posted at each of the local offices and at the MCC office and was emailed to all subscribed to the Google Group "MCC-Agendas"

So on the Regular Agenda – The Council may take action on any of the following items:

3a. Letter for representation of the MidCoast on Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) (Bill Kehoe) 8:05

Letter to the City/County Association of Governments of San Mateo County (C/CAG) requesting that the MCC be allowed to designate a MidCoast representative on Bicycle and Pedestrian Action Committee (BPAC) to champion MidCoast needs to the committee. At issue is the lack of representation of the unincorporated MidCoast on C/CAG Action Committees. This item is a carryover from 8/10/11 meeting because approval of sending the letter was not possible due to lack of quorum.

The draft letter is here: MidCoast Representation on BPAC

3b. Letter for using environmentally friendly paving in Quarry Park (Bill Kehoe) 8:15

Letter to the Board of Supervisors requesting a delay in any asphalt paving in Quarry Park until this issue can be fully vetted.  At issue is the use of asphalt paving of paths in the playground instead of using environmentally friendly coverings. Also, there was mention of the lack of proper planning process, community notification and justification of the subjective claims made by the county.  

The draft letter is here: Environmentally Friendly Pathways in Quarry Park

Because this issue was seen as “time critical”, all the council members in attendance agreed that sending the letter would be expedient as long as it was specified that there was a lack of quorum to support the letter from the full council. However, some council members want to have further discussions and develop an agreed upon approach to send out communications from a non-quorum meeting.  What further action should be taken on this matter? Some possible actions: (1) Review and vote on current letter.  (2) Discuss and vote on amended letter. (3) No further action.

c. Review of priorities and projects. (Len Erickson) 8:30

Council review of summary listing covering community topics of interest, projects, priorities and a summary of MCC actions since January 2010.  Discussion of any listed topic may be undertaken.  This is a discussion item.  No decisions will be made at this meeting.
