[EVENT] Peninsula Wellness Community Town Hall


What:
Town Hall to discuss the Peninsula Health Care District’s plans for the former Peninsula Hospital site
When:
Thursday, January 30th @ 6 P.M.
Where:
Lane Community Room, Burlingame Public Library
480 Primrose Road, Burlingame

The Peninsula Health Care District has updated their plans for the former Peninsula Hospital site. Come learn more about those plans and continue to uphold the important principle that public land should be used for the greatest possible public good.

[OP-ED] Public land for the greatest public good


In November of 2019, a revised vision was unveiled for the publicly owned land at the north end of Burlingame, a parcel of 6.42 acres under the jurisdiction of the Peninsula Health Care District. Clearly the new plan has moved the needle in the direction of the public good. But there is still a lot more that can be done to achieve the utmost public good.

The initial proposal was for a senior community that included 375 apartments, 90% at market rate and 10% minimally discounted. The new proposal includes a total of 477 senior apartments, with 39 percent affordable at lower-income levels.

But why not 100 percent?

One Redwood City (formerly Fair Rents, Redwood City) will be hosting a legal clinic for housing justice folks (like you)! Community Legal Services of East Palo Alto (CLSEPA) and Legal Aid Society of San Mateo attorneys will form a panel to review and to answer questions about the California Tenant Protection Act (AB 1482). We know that none of our cities are equipped to educate tenants and to fully support this new state law, and it will be up to us to truly get the word out and protect tenants against landlord backlash.
