It’s Time to Talk About Our Future!
General Plan & Housing Element Workshops Begin This Week
We’re returning to the community for feedback on our Strive San Mateo General Plan update and starting the important process of updating plans for how to prepare for new housing for all income levels.
We’re hosting several virtual community meetings in late March and April to recap where we are in our General Plan update and kick off our Housing Element update. These two long-range planning documents will help guide decisions about housing, transportation, the environment, public safety, economic development and much more.
