The Coastside Design Review Committee (CDRC) is appointed by the Board of Supervisors to ensure that new development is compatible with the physical setting of the site and the visual character of the communities of Montara, Moss Beach, El Granada, Miramar and Princeton.  The CDRC Chairperson prepares regular reports describing current matters of CDRC business.

Specific design standards for each community have been adopted by the County (contained in the Design Review (DR) Zoning Ordinance (Chapter 28.1)) which is used by the Committee to evaluate and take action on each application. 

Public hearings for the Coastside Design Review Committee are held on the second Thursday of each month at the Granada Community Services District Office, 3rd Floor, 504 Avenue Alhambra, El Granada.  Minor repair, replacement and construction up to 150 sq. ft. that complies with zoning district requirements may be exempt from committee review but subject to application requirements for an exemption. For additional information, please call Dennis Aguirre, Design Review Officer, at (650) 363-1837 or Camille Leung, Senior Planner, at (650) 363-1826.
