    I am unable to attend the BOS session today, January 23, 2018. My immediate concern is the Mission Rock Road area, and the fact that we now know that almost the entire area developed with industrial uses is within the 100-year floodplain. This area is very at risk from the erosive forces of the river, and in turn, endangers the properties downstream, the river itself, and even the ocean. The particularly noxious uses that are common in this area have the power to significantly harm other properties, and should be made nonconforming, so that as permits come up for renewal, the health of the river can take precedence. The property owners association never completed the conditions imposed on it in the CUP extension in the 1990s. The County seems ill-equipped to ensure regulatory compliance in this area, with the Santa Clara Wastewater explosion in 2014 being the case in point. It seems to be out-of-sight, out-of-mind. One would think that building the jail adjacent this property would have resulted in more consistent enforcement by the County, but that has not happened. For the health and safety of both humans and our environment, please change the land use designation to phase out these uses, and allow the essential ones to move to a location where there can be more consistent regulatory enforcement.
