body

BACKGROUND:

The Coastside Design Review Committee (CDRC) reviews new development proposals to ensure that they are 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 Committee reviews development applications for compliance with specific site planning and architectural standards developed for the area.  In Summer 2018, the CDRC initiated on-going discussions through Special Open Study Session meetings for the purpose of updating the current Design Standards for the Midcoast.

 

DISCUSSION:

Rebecca Katkin is a practicing architect living on the coastside, and is being recommended for the Architect position formerly held by Bruce Allen Chan, who decided to resign from the Committee once the vacancy was filled. His term ended March 31, 2020. Rebecca Katkin is the Principal and Owner at Katkin Architecture with emphases in residential architecture and commercial, arts institutional and residential interiors. She also has taught interior design at California College of the Arts and Art Institute of California. She has been active in various social service capacities, and a position on the Coastside Design Review Committee would allow her to bring together her professional and academic skills, while giving back to the community.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

None.
