The City of Half Moon Bay is pleased to announce the release of a new report, Building a More Equitable, Vibrant and Resilient Coastside Economy as part of its Coastside Recovery Initiative (CRI). The report outlines 15 strategic recommendations focused on more immediate recovery needs and solutions for a more sustainable and resilient future.

Over the course of 2021, the recommendations were developed to reflect the best ideas from a wide array of stakeholders, including members of a 17-member Recovery Task Force, the community, and subject matter experts to address the challenges our region is grappling with the most.  

They are intended to serve as a collective  blueprint for action with shared responsibility for implementation across City and County government, business, nonprofits and other community partners.
