[EVENT] Peninsula Wellness Community Town Hall

Town Hall to discuss the Peninsula Health Care District’s plans for the former Peninsula Hospital site

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?
