Resist Density, a nonprofit advocacy organization formed to fight development plans in Moss Beach, has filed suit against San Mateo County, alleging it was unresponsive after a Public Records Act request for documents related to two MidPen Housing developments. 

The organization’s mission and vision statements say it “advocates for the conservation of coastal land and sensible development.” Board member Karen deMoor said Resist Density aims to keep the community informed about the effects of big developments.

Good job to Resist Density for keeping the county and Midpen honest. They claim to want transparency but we know that’s the last thing they’re actually after. They know how unpopular and how inappropriate any development of this magnitude is on that parcel and how it puts people’s lives at risk to divert traffic directly into the highway. So resubmitted plan no doubt reflects a plan that diverts traffic through neighborhoods whose streets are too narrow to allow one way traffic when cars are parked on the curbs, so they are hoping to keep their plans secret and force them through before we have an opportunity to organize reasonable reasonable objections.

The behavior of the county and MidPen are objectionable and shameful and it’s good that we have groups like Resist Density here to fight for the interests of the community.
