At the links above are 2008 meeting minutes of the Project Development Team (PDT) that controls the Highway 1 widening project.
At the 4/17/08 meeting, new access points for a 40-plus-acre parcel along Highway 1 just north of the Lutheran church are discussed and accommodated by Caltrans and San Mateo County Transportation Authority (SMCTA) staff. This is a growth-inducing impact of the widening project, even though the project's draft environmental impact report (DEIR) says that the project will have no growth-inducing impacts as it is not associated with a project.
And at the 11/17/08 PDT meeting, Joe Hurley of SMCTA focuses on a six-lane project, rejecting all other alternatives. The collection of meeting minutes on the widening project highlights a process driven by state and county staff with little or no regard for the local population, other than avoiding lawsuits. Of interest are statements by Hurley and our own public works director Van Ocampo that characterize opponents of this project as simply a few retirees who don't use the highway during peak hours, and that these so-called retirees are a very vocal group.
