Martha Payotas, brought her consolidation presentation back to the coast last week in her effort to wrap up this phase of the drafting of the LAFCO report.
If you need a little background on what is going on here you can review the Montara Fog report on her last visit, a few weeks ago.
I think Martha may have been hoping for more citizens unaffiliated with the organizations under study but only one such individual appeared. But at least that citizen came prepared, going through the report and asking questions for a full thirty minutes or more.

Scott Boyd was there, too, as a member of the Board of the Montara Water and Sanitary District. At the end of the session he made a few comments about parks on the coast–the kind of park with swing sets–that I thought interesting and worth highlighting for a wider audience.
He was suggesting that information on the state of parks on the coast be recorded in the LAFCO report, even though the report wasn’t specifically about parks, since it would be used as a data source for future discussions.
In doing so he underlines one key difference between where our kids are growing up as compared to the places where many of the adults here grew up–there’s no place to go to play.
