County votes to acquire Moss Beach Park, completion of plan to save the park

The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors voted today to accept ownership of Moss Beach Park. The vote, after a short discussion, was 5-0. With this vote it is hoped that the park will be protected and preserved in perpetuity.

Earlier this year controversy erupted on the coast when it was learned that the park had inadvertently been sold to a developer for the non-payment of taxes. The park owner, the non-profit Coastside Preservation and Recreation, had become dormant and had, over the years since the parks community-led constriction in 2004, failed to pay the fees needed to keep up its non-profit status and even failed to pay for its post office box. When the county drew up a list of parcels to be sold to pay back taxes the park, listed only by parcel number, made the list. The sale was discovered shortly after the property was auctioned off to a Pacifica developer.

The community was galvanized by the issue and after over a week of turmoil a plan emerged, designed by County Supervisor Don Horsley: Void the auction, reconstitute the Coastside Preservation and Recreation organization to take ownership of the park in the short term, and transfer ownership of the park to the County in the long term. Today’s votes marks the completion of that plan.

Parks commissioner Neil Merrilees, who was involved in the original construction at the park, led the grassroots effort to undo the auction and preserve the park. Working with the community and with Horsley’s office Merrilees,who agreed to serve as the new president of the re-formed Coastside Preservation and Recreation, worked with the community to develop and build support for the plan.

At today’s meeting Commissioner Dave Pine spoke about the maintenance requirements and the associated costs the county would incur due to the park but nevertheless voiced strong support for the park’s acquisition. Horsley acknowledged those costs but suggested they might be offset by the assistance provided by local youth groups who are already active in maintaining the park and in a new “Friends of Moss Beach Park” group, comprised of local citizens.

Merrilees, in his remarks before the vote, said to the board that the community was ready and willing to do whatever was necessary to support the park.

Child pinned beneath car in Kelly Avenue mishap

PRESS RELEASE

Half Moon Bay, CA-   On Sunday, December 01, 2013, at approximately 12:17 pm, a Half Moon Bay  family was walking along Kelly Avenue, when some of the adult family members saw a couch across the street with signage indicating it was free. The adults left the children where they were and crossed the street to look at the couch.  It was at that time, one of the children, a 2 year old girl, ran out into the street and right in front of an oncoming vehicle.  Upon seeing the child, the driver of the vehicle immediately stopped his car, but the child was already pinned underneath. Having seen what happened; several bystanders jumped into action and lifted the vehicle thus freeing the child. Another bystander who happened to be a Physician’s Assistant immediately began tending to the child until the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office and Fire Department arrived on scene and took over. The child was conscious on scene and was transported to Fire Station 40 where she was then flown to the hospital by Life Flight.

As a result of the collision Kelly Avenue was shut down for several hours as the MAIT (Major Accident Investigation) Team assisted with conducting an investigation. As of today, the child is believed to be in stable condition. The driver who collided with the child was extremely cooperative with law enforcement on scene and was not believed to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the collision.
