Parkside Plan Update!

Printer-friendly version

The City Council and community members had a productive study session with consultants MIG about the three land use concepts prepared by MIG. Key discussion points included how to strike a balance between economic feasibility and maintaining community character, identifying and achieving community objectives and benefits, and meeting the city’s Housing Element obligations. MIG and staff will use the study session input to refine the draft Precise Plan, anticipated to be released for public review in early fall.

Check out the meeting video to hear the Council and community’s comments! The concept alternatives and MIG's PowerPoint presentation are available on the Parkside Documents webpage.

Comments on the concept alternatives are encouraged, and may be emailed to planning@ci.brisbane.ca.us or mailed to the Planning Department at City Hall (50 Park Place, Brisbane).

Keep your eyes peeled for additional opportunities to give input on the concept alternatives in the upcoming weeks!

 

Governor's By-Right Proposal

Printer-friendly version

The Governor and Democratic leaders reached a budget agreement that would allocate a one-time, $400 million dollars for affordable housing in exchange for approval of the Governor’s By-Right Proposal.  The Governor’s By-Right Proposal would allow by right approval for multi-family housing projects that set aside at least 20% of the units for low income residents.  Developments near transit stops could be built by right if they set aside 10% or more.  Although the projects would need to be consistent with our land-use laws, they would not need to go through a CEQA process or a public review process.  Essentially, this new law would:

1.       Lock out residents from city hall to participate in the planning and development process;

2.       Circumvent important environmental review processes; and

3.       Remove the ability of the City Council to vote on community development projects.

This bill is going forward with the state budget.  If you would like to let your representatives know your opinion on eliminating the City’s ability to influence development in Brisbane, their contact information is provided below.

HIP Housing Home Sharing Program

Printer-friendly version

Home Sharing is a living arrangement among two or more unrelated people. Home owners or renters (Home Providers) who have a residence with one or more bedrooms are matched with persons seeking housing (Home Seekers).

Two Types of Home Sharing
1. A home provider is matched with a home seeker who pays rent.
2. A home provider is matched with a home seeker who exchanges household duties for reduced rent.

Why Home Share?

  • Saves Money
  • Shares utility costs
  • Reduces financial worry
  • Provides mutual assistance
  • Increased security and independence

Who Home Shares?
Home Providers must live in San Mateo County. Home Seekers must live, work or attend school in San Mateo County or have a housing voucher for San Mateo County.  People who home share come from all walks of life… seniors, working persons, students, persons with disabilities, families, veterans, emancipated foster youth and others.
