GGNRA - Rancho Corral de Tierra
Montara & Moss Beach
Trailhead & Parking Conceptual Plans

Presented at a public meeting, Montara, Nov 13, 2012

The series of images below are photos of posters displayed by the GGNRA at a public meeting. The red text in yellow boxes was added by Coastside Video. GGNRA stands for Golden Gate Recreation Area, a part of the National Park Service (NPS).

Following is a comment received 3/21/13 from GGNRA representative regarding these photos:

"These are PRELIMINARY conceptual plans only, and meant to stimulate discussion. These are in no way final plans and we [GGNRA] are not just going to select one and move forward. This was just an attempt to illustrate how the program elements may fit into a future trailhead, but there is still quite a bit of planning to be done. Feedback is welcome! GGNRA will be engaging in a more formal outreach process for these trailheads later this year."
and
"... the planning process is just beginning"

Coastside Video editorial: The 'fallow field' area across from Montara State Beach should remain undeveloped. This is important for maintaining the quality of the unique and wonderful open space adjacent to the ocean. There should not be any parking or other facilities built in the 'fallow field' area. We strongly oppose the Montara Alt-1 & 2 (photos 2 & 3) conceptual plans shown below.

Development in the 'fallow field' area would be inconsistent with the enabling legislation of the GGNRA (pdf), in which the 'Statement of Purpose', states, in part: ... "In the management of the recreation area, the Secretary of the Interior (hereinafter referred to as the "Secretary") shall utilize the resources in a manner which will provide for recreation and educational opportunities consistent with sound principles of land use planning and management. In carrying out the provisions of this subchapter, the Secretary shall preserve the recreation area, as far as possible, in its natural setting, and protect it from development and uses which would destroy the scenic beauty and natural character of the area."
