North Crestview Site
North Crestview Site Overview
The North Crestview site is a 4.0 acre parcel located along the western side of Crestview Drive, just south of Club Drive. The site is owned by the City of San Carlos and is designated as a Park site in the City’s General Plan.
On March 17, 2014, the City received a letter from Craig Baker, Superintendent of San Carlos School District, requesting the City and School District enter into a formal agreement to exchange the School District’s property at the top of Tierra Linda School campus with the City’s property at the North Crestview Site.

At a Special City Council Meeting on Monday, June 30, the Council conducted a protest hearing regarding North Crestview Park. The hearing considered objections to the Council moving forward with an election in November to allow San Carlos voters to remove the park designation from North Crestview Park. If the voters had passed this measure in November, the property would no longer have been designated a park, and could then be used for other purposes, such as a school site. Over 600 protests were received prior to the hearing, and after public comment and discussion, the Council, by a vote of 3-2, chose not to move forward with the election (a 4-1 vote in favor of the election was the required margin for passage). Therefore, the North Crestview Park will retain its park status.
