Coastside Recovery Initiative

CoastsideRecoveryInitiative_logo_finalAs the Coastside copes with the financial impacts of COVID-19, immediate, targeted relief and long-term economic and social policies will be essential in forging the path forward toward a brighter future. The City of Half Moon Bay, in partnership with the Coastside Half Moon Bay Chamber of Commerce and San Mateo County has launched the Coastside Recovery Initiative,. This initiative is guided by a diverse, multi-sector Recovery Task Force and will result in a set of action-based recommendations that address both immediate recovery and what it will take to create a more equitable, vibrant, and resilient economy over the long-term.
