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?!
