Hanging Fire: Eucalyptus Crown Fires and El Granada

OWN VOICE. ~ InPerspective by Keith Mangold and Gregg Dieguez

The Paradise fire brought home to Californians the devastation caused by high winds, hot temperatures and low humidity in an era of Climate Crisis. Quarry Park is one square mile of eucalyptus that could make El Granada a literal synonym for Paradise, CA. The following slideshow was inspired by a 2017 trip to Portugal where we saw how similar the area looked, with its eucalyptus and broom. That fall, fires killed 54 people in the area we had traveled. The last time El Granada burned was late November in 1929 when a wildfire raged from Pescadero to Montara.  So far, we have been fortunate, but we cannot rely on luck in the future!


MCC Discussion: Miramar Bridge Retreat to Alameda Blvd or Buy the Old Miramar Train Depot Vacant Lot?

VIDEO. From the Midcoast Community Council meeting 10/14/2020.

Review bridge design, related armoring, and alignment alternatives considered by DPW for the Coastal Development Permit application to the Coastal Commission.

Desired Outcome: Determine whether MCC should submit comment on this project.

Midcoast Community Council October 14, 2020.



Could The Furtado Culvert Be the Answer to the Mirada/Hwy 1 Crosswalk?

VIDEO. Midcoast Community Council’s Dan Haggery has favored under passing Hwy 1 to get across. This may be the perfect answer in this situation.

From the 10/14/2020 MCC meeting.

Crossing Hwy 1 at  East Miramar Dr. and West Miramar Dr. on a bike was tough with a turn lane, but now the turn lanes have been taken out to make room for the Miramar Bridge detour, it is impossible.



Goat Fire Super Heroes Eat Up Fire Fuels and Invasive Weeds For Sewer Authority Mid-Coastside

VIDEO. Goats will be monitored and herded to different areas to ensure that they do not overgraze  vegetation.  Temporary fencing that provides a mild electrical shock will be used to prevent  goats from entering environmentally sensitive areas. Typical fencing consists of one to three  strands of wire, mounted to posts, high enough to stop goats and similarly sized mammals.  Smaller mammals and other species may pass under the wires freely. The electrical current is  limited to a level that ensures that the shock will not injure or kill. It is a safe, proven, well  established  tool  for  controlling  animal  movements  by  establishing  a  psychological  barrier  through conditioned response.



San Mateo County Planning Adopts Parks and Facilities 5 Year Routine Maintenance Program

VIDEO. From the  San Mateo County Planning’s 9/9/2020 9:00am meeting.

Coastal Development Permit to authorize routine maintenance activities at County maintained parks and facilities over the course of a five-year period for the Department of Public Works Five-Year Master Permit for the County’s Routine Maintenance Program.

Primary on-going activities include culvert, bridge, and other storm drainage maintenance; roadside ditch and swale maintenance; sediment removal; bank stabilization; vegetation management; and trail and road maintenance.



Montara Sanitary and Water District Responds to City of HMB’s Sewer Lawsuit

PRESS RELEASE dated 10/10/2020.

HMB made inaccurate, self-serving public statements related to pending litigation. Mediation is a legally-protected process which bars participants from revealing the content of negotiations.

HMB sued MWSD, GCSD, SAM to break a 40-year agreement which ties the Coastside’s critical sewer treatment together. HMB is seeking to renege on their obligations to this essential joint system.

We look forward to addressing this baseless lawsuit in court.

~ The Montara Sanitary and Water District Board of Directors



To Protect Its Ratepayers Granada Community Services District (GCSD) Rejects Tentative Lawsuit Settlement with Half Moon Bay
