Granada Community Services District


Mission Statement:  To protect public health and safety, preserve our environment, and maintain fiscal soundness by providing high quality service for wastewater, solid waste collection, recycling, and serving the community’s needs for parks and recreation, through responsible operations and management.

The Granada Sanitary District was formed in 1958 under the California Sanitary District Act of 1923. In October of 2014, the District was reorganized as the Granada Community Services District under California Government Code 61000 et seq.  The District is responsible for parks, recreation, garbage and recycling services in the unincorporated areas of El Granada, Princeton, Princeton-by-the-Sea, Clipper Ridge, and Miramar.  The District is also responsible for the sewage collection system and disposal for approximately 2,500 residences and businesses in these same unincorporated areas as well as the northern portion of the City of Half Moon Bay.  Garbage and recycling services are provided by Recology of the Coast under a franchise agreement with the Granada Community Services District.

The District office is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and is located on the third floor of 504 Avenue Alhambra, El Granada. To contact the District please call (650) 726-7093. Regular board meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m.



The Granada Community Services District will be starting Phase One of the San Mateo County Resource Conservation District Management Plan on the Burnham Strip property located between Hwy. 1 and Obispo Road in El Granada.  This phase of the plan addresses vegetative management to enhance the native plant populations.  The work involved, performed by employees of Ecological Concerns, experts in CA native plants and habitat restoration, will consist of removing the Jubata/Pampas grass, Himalayan Blackberry, Acacia and Cotoneaster from the property, which are non-native invasive weeds.  The work will be done with hand tools over a period of a few days beginning on Wednesday, January 23rd.   Persons with questions about the project are directed to call the GCSD at (650) 726-7093.
