Q &A FOR MROSD FROM RURAL LANDS SUSTAINABILITY COMMITTEE

Fill out speakers slip & present copies to MROSD Board of Directors

Dr. Andrea Braun, Director & Chair, Rural Lands Sustainability Committee
Comments Regarding MROSD Annexation Plan of San Mateo Coastal Zone

  • It is clear from reviewing the MROSD Coastal Annexation Plan that this Special District is neither a competent resource manager of their current 46,000 acre Biomass Fuel Depot  nor are they  prepared to provide San Mateo County coastal residents with a watershed resource management plan, wildland/urban interface (WUI) fire management plan or fiscal business plan.
  • The Coastside Fire Safe Council finds it alarming that the MROSD Board of Directors clearly doesn't understand  the sole purpose of the CEQA environmental review process: The California Supreme Court has declared:   `` CEQA' purpose is to inform the public and its responsible officials of the environmental consequences of their decisions ``BEFORE" they are made. Thus, the EIR protects not only the environment but also informed self-government."  The MROSD annexation approach to ``Urban Open Space Sprawl" is not only the antithesis of CEQA but contrary to the basic principles of ``informed consent".
  • Over the last thirty years, the District has created a 46,000 acre ``Biomass Fuel Depot" (aka MROSD open space urban  green belt) that places all  San Francisco Peninsula communities at risk of a catastrophic WUI wildfire.
  • Where is the MROSD Open Space Watershed Fire Management Plan?
  • Where is the MROSD  Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Fuel Management Plan? 
  • MROSD WUI Defensible Spaces Plan?
  • Watershed Resource Management Plan? 
  • District Business Plan?
  • Why should the San Mateo County Coastal Communities trust MROSD to do the right thing?
  • How is MROSD going to do to protect us from their 46,000 acre  Biomass Fuel Depot Catastrophic WUI Wildfire Time Bomb?!
