VIDEO. From Midpeninsula Open Space District District (MROSD of “Midpen) Special Director’s meeting on Wednesday, November 9th, 2022 at 5:00pm by Zoom.
Towards the end of the meeting Director, Zoe Keersten-Tucker, asks staff if the Carrying Capacity of Purisima Road had been studied. MROSD General Manager, Anna Ruiz, indicated that such a study would require a 3-year CIP study, which is a “heavy lift” for staff.
Traffic volume is expressed as a vehicle per hour. The carrying capacity of the road is referred to as the maximum amount of weight or traffic volume a road can bear.
The Purisima Multimodal Access Study project began in August 2021 to review local and regional plans, evaluate existing site and visitation conditions at Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve, identify recommended preserve-wide transportation demand management strategies, conduct public engagement to solicit feedback and develop a broad implementation plan for the recommended strategies. The Planning and Natural Resources Committee has provided guidance throughout the development of the project to make ready for review and consideration by the full Board.

Thank you for your interest.
In a special meeting on November 9th 2022 at 5 p.m., the Midpen board of directors will review and affirm the findings and recommendations of the Purisima Creek Redwoods Preserve Multimodal Access and Transportation Demand Management Study report. The goals of the project are to evaluate existing preserve parking, access and visitation; identify strategies to parking and traffic issues and manage visitation; and develop an implementation plan.
