Town Hall to discuss the Peninsula Health Care District’s plans for the former Peninsula Hospital site
Thursday, January 30th @ 6 P.M.
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.
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?

This is the first town hall since the Peninsula Health Care District board was forced by the community to go back to the drawing board and revise their plans for putting primarily market-rate housing on public land. The early indications, however, are that the plans still do not go far enough in dedicating the land to affordable housing. Therefore, we, the community of people whose tax dollars pay for this land, need to continue to demonstrate to the PHCD board our overwhelming commitment to an affordable housing centered vision for this land.
