Downtown San Mateo ULI TAP

Wednesday, May 20th from 2-3pm at Draper University (Hero City).

The Urban Land Institute (ULI) Technical Assistance Panel (TAP) provided focused, professional discussion centered around two former Redevelopment Agency (RDA) sites in Downtown San Mateo, adjacent the downtown rail corridor. The panel, consisting of architects, developers, planners, economists, and consultants, was assigned to brainstorm and provide input on what types of development would be most appropriate for the Study Area and how future use of the RDA sites would fit into its context. Discussions considered various scenarios,  demographic and market trends, and existing zoning controls and land uses.

The ULI TAP concluded with recommendations for San Mateo to assume a long-term mindset in development decisions, maintain flexibility, and strive to address regional issues related to climate change, jobs growth, and housing.
