MidPen announced they are interested in purchasing the property. In response, "24 members of the public spoke, all in opposition to Moss Beach high density housing. Public comments expressed respect and support for the work MidPen does, but that this is the wrong location for high-density low-income housing, which is inconsistent with the surrounding community of single-family homes on 5,000 s/f lots, far from jobs, shopping, and services, with limited transit and lacking adequate roads (highway congestion and narrow local streets). Neighbors like the quaint small-town feeling and don’t want it to change. They are concerned that new traffic will probably use Carlos & Stetson rather than Carlos direct to highway. Local streets are too narrow for parking. Children play in the street and residents walk their dogs. Concerns about construction disturbance and lowered property values were mentioned. Many would like the property to remain undeveloped, such as a park. Some expressed willingness to contribute time & money toward purchase and preservation, and/or to fight development.” (from MCC meeting minutes)
Out of concern over this development, members of the community organized and created Resist Density.
