SAN MATEO CITY UPDATES


THANKS FOR MAKING THE DISTRICT 1 GENERAL PLAN COMMUNITY MEETING A BIG SUCCESS!


Thanks to the 100+ people who showed up to the Library on Wednesday night to learn about San Mateo's General Plan 2040 and give their feedback. This plan is the result of 5 years of community discussions and covers everything from housing to traffic to parks to keeping our Downtown vibrant...and so much more.


Here is the report that our new City Manager, Alex Khojikian, wrote after he attended on Wednesday:

" We had another very productive and well attended town hall meeting for District 1 last night.  There were approximately 22 staff from all City Depts and San Mateo Consolidated Fire Department there to support the event, with approximately 115 members of the public joining, including many first-time attendees. There was a lot of good dialogue and questions, with the meeting wrapping up around 8:30.  Comment themes included concerns about new housing development, ensuring that City services and infrastructure will be maintained and expanded to support this planned population growth, how will the City be able to fund these infrastructure investments, will the General Plan negatively impact the City’s operating budget, comments/questions about our circulation system, traffic congestion and funding the needed bike, pedestrian and street improvements, support/concern related to historic designations and support for adding more policies/actions to address seniors and support our Age Friendly Community designation."


You can read the San Mateo General Plan 2040 (or the chapters that interest you), review the staff presentation, see the schedule for other community meetings in September, and leave your comments at www.strivesanmateo.org. These Town Halls won't be Zoomed, so please try to attend one in person. This is the roadmap for San Mateo for the next 20 years...be part of our future!

SEPTEMBER NIGHTS ON B ARE BACK! SEPT. 7 & 14, 6PM-8PM


This past Thursday, Sept. 7, was the fantastic kick off of San Mateo's annual Sept. Nights on B...and what a celebration it was. Latin Rock live music drew everyone, young and old, to the dance floor or to listen to the music while enjoying dinner from one of the many great restaurants on the B Street Pedestrian Mall.


The street was transformed into an outdoor dining pavilion featuring tables and chairs beneath the twinkle lights. A children's play area, including a Rock Climbing Tower (!), giant Legos and Corn Hole, was a big hit. Tables hosted by San Mateo Parks and Rec, PAL and other community organizations added to the community spirit. Beer and wine is available for purchase on site. No outside alcohol allowed.


This fun will be repeated this coming Thursday, Sept. 14th, 6pm-8pm, on the B Street Pedestrian Mall. Stop by and see how great San Mateo's downtown is becoming!








The San Mateo Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the second annual Fall Fest on Saturday, September 30, from 10am – 6pm, on B Street. You won't want to miss the best outdoor block party on the Peninsula where there is fun for all ages in the heart of downtown San Mateo.


Enjoy a wide variety of music, entertainment, local arts and street vendors, gastronomical delights, and family-friendly activities as you stroll down B Street. Craft beer and cider as well as a selection of local wines will be available for purchase to quench your thirst. The event is free and open to the public. It is expected to draw 5,000 + attendees from throughout the Bay Area.


Downtown San Mateo is the heart of our community. It is the place where people come together. Come and join the Chamber and all of San Mateo on September 30 for Fall Fest and experience the very best of what our downtown has to offer!
