Affordable Rental Housing Policies Study Session


All those interested in seeing San Mateo do more to help renters in this deeply challenging housing market should make sure to come out for the upcoming study session at city hall. A range of modest but valuable policies which One San Mateo and its allies have been working to highlight over the past year will be discussed. These include relocation assistance (coupled with but distinct from red-tag relocation assistance), data collection on the rental market, enhanced Section 8 usability, and a boost in the city’s below-market-rate unit mandate. We want the city to use every tool it can to keep people housed.

[EVENT] Car-Light Housing: More Affordability, Less Traffic


Transportation and housing are at a crisis point in Silicon Valley, and they’re connected to another hot issue: climate change. What can we do to solve all three problems simultaneously?

One San Mateo Meeting


When: 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on February 11, 2018
Where: The Congregational Church of San Mateo (225 Tilton Ave. near downtown San Mateo)
This is to remind you that we will be meeting again this Sunday, February 11 from 6 to 8 pm.  We will meet at our customary location, which is the Congregational Church of San Mateo (CCSM) at 225 Tilton Avenue. 

There are many very important things to discuss on Sunday.  Among them are designing a process for reaching an organizational position on Measure P and developing a consistent set of questions to guide our upcoming meetings with council members.  We will also have reports on the meeting with Sandy Council, the City Council meeting on 2/5/18, developments at 314 E. Poplar, and the nifty new ADU tool that has just been released.  If there are other items that members of the group want to bring up, we will be sure to include a heading in the agenda for “other business.” 

John Fyfe has agreed to facilitate the meeting, and I will be prepared with a reflection.  Please come and be ready to roll up your sleeves!
