This is to remind you that One San Mateo will be meeting tomorrow evening (Wednesday, February 13) at the Congregational Church of San Mateo at 225 Tilton Avenue. As usual, we will meet from 7 to 8:45 pm.
Among other things, we will continue planning our advocacy around the use of the hospital site that is owned and controlled by the Peninsula Health Care District, prepare for the discussion of the red tag ordinance at the City Council meeting on Tuesday, February 19, and hear from Justin about some thinking done by a few members of the Steering Committee recently about OSM strategies and priorities. We look forward to Claudia’s reflection and to John Ebneter’s skillful fulfillment of his role as meeting chair.

San Mateo moves closer to relocation assistance for tenants displaced from substandard properties


In an effort to support at-risk tenants who find themselves in unsafe housing, San Mateo city officials are shaping an ordinance aimed at requiring landlords who don’t properly maintain their units to pay for the relocation costs of affected tenants.
Among the measures councilmembers considered at their Tuesday meeting was requiring landlords whose tenants are temporarily displaced by substandard living conditions to provide another unit or hotel room within a 10-mile radius. They also considered mandating those landlords whose tenants are permanently displaced provide them with three months of fair-market rent.
