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.
The dissolution of redevelopment agencies in California left many cities grasping at straws to hold on to properties that could be used to help squelch the affordable housing crisis. Now, San Mateo is inching closer to leveraging its own land as it considers a range of ideas submitted by 10 interested developers.
The City Council meets in closed session Monday to discuss preliminary proposals for two parcels well-situated near downtown and the Caltrain line that were purchased with former redevelopment agency funds nearly two decades ago.
Affordable housing and parking are top priorities for the growing city, but balancing demands while working within a limited budget is a challenge officials must ultimately face. With that in mind, the council appealed to the development community for ideas as well as how to finance them.
Property serving as ground zero for the former rent control debate in Burlingame is slated to be redeveloped into a large live-work project which received mixed initial reviews from city officials.
