General Plan and Housing Element – Project Updates
The City will host several virtual community meetings in late March and April to: 1) provide a recap of the General Plan update effort over this past year (during the pandemic), 2) kick off the Housing Element update effort, and 3) restart the community conversations on the draft Land Use and Circulation Alternatives to study for future change. Once these meeting dates are confirmed, they will be posted on the project websites at: www.StriveSanMateo.org and www.CityofSanMateo.org. Check out the websites next week for more information!
