BAYWOOD BULLETIN JUNE 2024

IMPORTANT MEETING WED., JULY 10 ON POTENTIAL NOVEMBER LAND USE BALLOT MEASURE

Please plan to attend the Wed., July 10, 7pm Baywood Neighborhood Association (BNA)-hosted Zoom meeting on the land use ballot measure being proposed for this November’s election.  See Zoom information below.


San Mateo City Manager, Alex Khojikian, will review the City’s recently approved Housing Element and how San Mateo proposes to zone for 7,015 of State-mandated new housing units by 2031.  The City plans to zone for this new housing largely along transit-oriented corridors (i.e. El Camino Real and Caltrain), and Hillsdale and Bridgepointe shopping centers.  These areas were chosen after several years of community discussion and staff analysis as to the best way to balance the City’s future growth needs with maintaining the character of San Mateo.


The goal is to meet State requirements by encouraging new residential growth closer to Downtown and other locations where stores, services and restaurants already exist, as well as to encourage people to leave their cars at home to protect the environment.  This potential measure also would preserve existing height and density measures outside of the designated areas and preserve single family home neighborhoods, including Baywood.


BNA encourages everyone to attend this July 10 Zoom meeting.  If placed on the ballot, San Mateo voters will have a very important decision to make as to how and where our city grows.  City staff are holding meetings with numerous groups on this issue between now and mid-July.  Non-Baywood neighbors also are invited to attend the BNA Zoom meeting if they don’t have access to another meeting so that as many residents as possible get the information they need to make their decision this November.


 Please share this information with your neighbors and San Mateo friends.  We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, July 10th, at 7pm, on Zoom (Zoom information below).

SAN MATEO CITY UPDATES


SAN MATEO CITY COUNCIL DIRECTS STAFF TO WORK WITH COMMUNITY TO DEVELOP

A CITYWIDE HISTORIC RESOURCES PROGRAM


On Monday, June 17, City staff presented options to Council on how the City could plan to identify and manage historic resources across the City.  This request was made by Council to address the strong community interest in the subject of historic resources, especially in neighborhoods like Baywood.  City Council directed staff to proceed with the development of a Citywide local historic resources program that includes several opportunities for community input.  The overall program could take up to 2 years to complete, from workplan development to creation of supporting municipal code.


 Design of a local historic resources program would involve extensive opportunities for community input to guide how the City identifies and manages historic resources across San Mateo.  The goal is to develop a program that reflects community opinions on how to manage historic resources while also preserving important resources that reflect San Mateo’s history. 


The City will take the lead on this program and will continually update its Historic Resources page to provide thorough and factual information.  As stated previously, BNA will not be involved in these discussions.  But we encourage everyone interested to check in with the City’s web page regularly and attend all future community outreach opportunities on the topic.  This is the best way to ensure your opinions are heard and that the final local historic resources program reflects San Mateans’ sensibilities.


You can find out the latest information on San Mateo historic resources at https://cityofsanmateo.org/4775/Historic-Resources.


You also can sign up for the City e-newsletter to be informed of future meeting dates at https://www.cityofsanmateo.org/4707/Email-Alerts-News.
