At a community meeting Wednesday at Farallone View Elementary in Montara, San Mateo County Supervisor Don Horsley shared his plan for saving Moss Beach Park in Moss Beach to a crowd of concerned residents.
Coastside residents were stunned earlier this month to learn that Moss Beach Park had been auctioned off to a Pacifica developer. Now the future of the beloved children's playground is in question. More articles about the situation can be here read here.
Here's what Horsley outlines in his plan, according to a report on Montara Fog:
• San Mateo County exercises its right to cancel the sale of Moss Beach Park to Pacifica developer Mike O’Connell.
• The non-profit Coastside Preservation and Recreation re-forms under new leadership and re-assumes ownership of the park.
• The $8,000 tax bill is paid from non-County sources.
• With taxes paid by Sept. 16, transfer of property can be completed by the end of the year.
• Coastside Preservation and Recreation votes to give the park to the County.
• The County Board of Supervisors vote to change their policy concerning park, allowing the County to own and operate “pocket parks.”
• The County accepts the offer from Coastside Preservation and Recreation of the park, and maintains Moss Beach Park into perpetuity.
