On Wednesday, October 10, the City Council and Planning Commission will be meeting to review the Transit Corridors Plan (TCP). The main purpose of the meeting is to discuss the Plan and the findings of the environmental review. The public is welcome to attend. There will be multiple public hearings in the coming months, and you will receive notices 10 days before those hearings.
The City of San Bruno has been working on the Plan with the aim of revitalizing important commercial corridors in the older parts of the city. At the end of August, we sent you a letter and list of frequently asked questions about the Plan. Since then, we have heard from several residents and property owners. Thank you for getting in contact with us to talk about the Plan.
One of the most common questions from property owners has been whether they could be forced to sell their homes. The simple answer to this question is “No.” The City does not intend to use eminent domain to acquire any residential property. The TCP would allow owners of private property in the Plan area to build a mix of commercial space and housing. The Plan does not require any new development; it just allows a larger range of types of development. If you have any questions about this, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
