Members of the public should attend, so this is less of a surprise, if for no other reason.

It’s not clear that many people have noticed, but the city of Half Moon Bay has commissioned post-graduate students from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo to prepare a Downtown Plan and Design Guidelines.

Tonight, they are presenting the final design plan with guidelines for the future development of Downtown Half Moon Bay. The public is encouraged to attend this meeting at 7:00 PM at the Ted Adcock Senior/Community Center, 535 Kelly Avenue.

As described on the City of Half Moon Bay web site:

DOWNTOWN PLAN UNVEILED THURSDAY, JUNE 2, 2011

Post graduate students in the City and Regional Planning program at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo have been working with the Half Moon Bay Planning Department in the preparation of a Downtown Plan and Design Guidelines.

An initial public workshop was conducted on Saturday April 9th, in which community members, city officials and city staff actively participated. The purpose of the workshop was to facilitate a free flow of thoughts and an exchange of ideas about what makes the Downtown special and what would make it even better. Participants engaged in a survey that evaluated what about the Downtown should be preserved, what should be changed and what should be added. The survey was also posted on the City’s website. In all, 317 responses to the survey were received and the input was summarized for a Focus Group meeting held on May 7th, 2011.

The community’s input has been incorporated into the final design plan with guidelines for the future development of Downtown Half Moon Bay. The public is encouraged to attend this meeting at 7:00 PM at the Ted Adcock Senior/Community Center, 535 Kelly Avenue.
