There goes our pristine coastal wilderness again. This time near downtown Half Moon Bay.
From Half Moon Bay Review/Mark Noack, 6/14/12. "City OKs 12-home subdivision."
... "Overriding some public concerns, elected leaders unanimously approved a new subdivision map that could create a 12-home subdivision on land bordering Pilarcitos Creek." Gibraltar Capital, Inc.(the funding development corporation) with environmental studies completed "assured the city council that this project is complying with local coastal protections, pointing out that two-thirds of the property would be kept in open space."
.... "Half Moon Bay resident Jimmy Benjamin, who is currently embroiled in legal action against the city for allegedly ignoring watershed protections, warned that the new housing community would be built directly on a recognized endangered species habitat. He recommended the city consider mitigation measures if it went forward with this development."
