Millwood is a beautiful ranch. What are you talking about? It hasn't had any of these problems this self-proclaimed "engineer" has complained about? Hello? It rained 21 of 30 days last month! Sounds to me like someone is jealous. How about that old beachfront sewage plant eyesore! Now that's a real problem. We should have turned that into something special a long time ago.

No offense to anyone hoping that we charge for parking at the pier, but the work going on back at Millwood Ranch is what this article was about and I, for one, am interested in anything anyone might know on this subject. Perhaps someone should start a thread about raising revenue by means of charging for parking at the pier.

I agree with the parking pass or a meter. There really is way too much trash at the pier. It's really disgusting and no one enforces the litter policy at the pier. Why don't they patrol it and start fining the people who litter. Now there is some revenue!!!

What the heck is the connection between the Millwood Ranch and the old WWTP?

The old sewer plant has been a blight on Sharp Park and a waste of prime oceanfront property for far too long. It is now used to store various junk and vehicles as well as our precious City Council.

I think the perfect use for this beautiful location would be an ocean-view restaurant. There are not that many prime locations along the coast offering fine ocean-view dining. This would create more of a reason for out-of-towners to come here and spend money as well as improving the neighborhood. A restaurant/microbrewery along the lines of The Beach Chalet or Half Moon Bay Brewing Co. or Moss Beach Distillery would draw visitors and locals and add much-needed tax revenues.

Any restaurant that leases the property would be responsible for remodeling and bringing it up to code just as when a restaurant leases any property. There's plenty of room for parking in the middle.

City Council can meet anywhere, such as the community center, city hall -- hell, put them in Ed Cordero or a tent, for all I care. But why waste such a great location any longer?

And speaking of increasing revenues, I think it's time that out-of-towners parking near the pier should be charged some kind of fee(s) for parking and/or use of the pier. Many of these fisherpeople come from over the hill and don't spend a dime in our city. Yet we have to pick up their litter and maintain the pier for them. I think Pacifica residents should get a parking pass for a low annual fee or free. Out-of-towners would have to pay $5 per day or a discount for a year pass.

What do you think?
