Moss Beach Park non-profit reforms with new leadership

CPR

Pictured, from left to right (front row): Rocky Raynor, treasurer of the Coastside Boys and Girls Club, who accepted the donation to pay the tax bill while CP&R was reforming, Debora MacKimmie, treasurer of CP&R, Julie and Paul Shenkman, owners of Sam’s Chowder House, who donated the money to pay the park’s tax bill, (back row) Eric Watts, vice-president of CP&R, Bruce MacKimmie and Chris Ekeberg, both at-large members of CP&R, Neil Merrilees, president of CP&R, and Don Horsley, San Mateo County Supervisor.

The non-profit that owns Moss Beach Park,  Coastside Preservation and Recreation (CP&R), has reformed with new leadership. Neil Merrilees has joined the board as president along with Eric Watts as vice-preident, Kirsten Baron serving as secretary, and Debora MacKimmie as the new treasurer. Also serving on the new board are Bruce MacKimmie, Tim Pond, and Chris Ekeberg.

The group will now have to follow through on handing the park over to the County, once the county changes its policy regarding “pocket” parks

One month ago coastsiders were astonished to learn that he Moss Beach Park has been sold to Pacifica developer Mike O’Connell. Citizens rallied to defend the park and the county intervened in the sale, returning the park to the original owner, the nonprofit Coastside Preservation and Recreation. The old board had languished after the park was build in 2004 and failed to pay its property taxes for many years, resulting in the parcel being listed on the county’s delinquent property auction list.

    Perhaps Sam’s Chowder House has another $10k to pay the back taxes due on the other parcel owned by CP&R ?

    Parcel 037-273-090, mentioned by Morgana on 24 Sept, is approximately (judging by google maps) 960 Ocean Blvd, and is two parcels south of Precita, on the west side of Ocean. Clearly non-buildable, but if CPR owns it, worth trying to preserve from yet another tax sale. Has anybody commicated this to Neil or Don Horsley yet?
