  • City Council Study Session: Clarification of Study Areas

    Date/Time: 7:00 pm, October 7, 2019

    Location: City Hall (Council Chambers), 330 West 20th Avenue, San Mateo

    The General Plan is the document that guides how the City will look, feel, and change over the next 20 years. General Plan study areas are those areas that are most likely to change over the next 20 years. Those changes could be new development, new bike or pedestrian amenities, traffic improvements, infrastructure upgrades, street beautification, or other changes. Identifying study areas is the first step in the process to envision, evaluate, and choose among future alternative scenarios.

    At this meeting, the City Council provided clarification on the General Plan study areas based on feedback from the community to update the Study Area Boundaries Map Version 4 (V4), including eliminating one- and two-family residentially zoned parcels from study areas and increasing focus on residential growth by employing accessory dwelling units. This change confirmed that no land use alternatives or upzoning will be initially considered in the one- and two-family residential zones throughout the city.
