Let’s Talk San Mateo!

How is the issue of housing affecting you and those you care about? Join usfor a different type of dialogue about housing in our community.

You’re invited to the second of two community conversations on Saturday, May 18 at Hillsdale High School. There will be free childcare, food and Spanish translation at both events.

Whether you came to the first meeting or not, join us to continue discussing how we can work together on housing! How can we work together to support renters, landlords and homeowners? What kind of short-term and long-term housing options do you think would best match San Mateo’s community needs and character? We’re building on the feedback we received from the community during our first conversation on April 27, as well as during pop-up outreach events over the last two months.

“Community Conversations: Housing in San Mateo” is a joint effort between the City and Home for All, a San Mateo County collaborative, aimed at helping our community talk more constructively about the shared challenge of housing. Our goal is to create an inclusive environment for dialogue where all people are welcome to share their perspectives. This effort starts with you!

Help us reach as many people as possible in San Mateo, especially those who have not been part of housing conversations in the past.

These conversations will use a different format than the meetings the City typically hosts. The goal is for community members to talk and listen to each other, as well as share stories and ideas. City staff and elected officials will be present only as listeners. Please join us and bring a friend!

Although these discussions aren’t part of a specific project or the General Plan update, our community’s perspectives will be especially helpful as the City evaluates future housing-related policies.
