Who Knows What the New Fence Along Highway 1 is All About?

Half Moon Bay Patch readers asked and we found you the answer.

Wondering what the fence is all about along Highway 1 between Terrace Avenue and Grandview Boulevard?

We know some of you are. Half Moon Bay Patch readers sent in e-mails the past couple of days wanting to know what's going on.

So here's your answer: It’s a hog wire fence.

On Feb. 10, 2012, Larry Carnahan on behalf of the City of Half Moon Bay’s Public Works Department submitted an application for a Coastal Development Permit to allow the installation of a hog wire fence beginning at the northwest corner to the southeast corner of the property boundary along Highway 1, and along various lengths of the southern property boundary known as the Cabrillo Property, two parcels approximately 35 acres owned by the City of Half Moon Bay.

According to the Planning Director report from June 19, 2012, there has been dumping of household trash and debris on the property, and in order to deter this from continuing to happen, the City proposed the installation of fencing along the most direct access points to the property.

Hard to buy into this, on the Hwy 1 side of property there is a concrete ditch that is about 18 inches deep, pretty hard for someone to discretely get past that without getting stuck. Where there was a proposed road there are k-rails to block access. While I can see protecting the property it would be nice to have a walking path from Grandview neighborhood to the Terrace neighborhood so that the kids can get to school and folks can get to town without having to walk along the side of the highway, don't know how many times I see mothers with strollers doing this with a couple of kids in tow. Fencing off a safe passage it not a good answer at least put in some trail head type passage gates so people don't have to put their lives in danger because they are walking into town. In my opinion it is twenty thousand that could have been put to some other use.
