We invite all members of the public to review the Plan Documents and continue to provide input. The Draft EIR has been released and there will be a 45-day public comment period that ends May 12, 2012. The Draft Transit Corridors Plan is also available and both documents can be viewed here.
Who is leading this effort?
Ultimately the Plan will implement the vision created by the citizens who participate in the community workshops. A 17-member Steering Committee was formed to advise the Redevelopment Agency and Planning Commission and provide overall policy direction for the plan. The steering committee members represent diverse interests, including- Redevelopment Agency and Planning Commission members, residents, business owners, Chamber of commerce, property owners, and real estate professionals. The steering committee has met seven times at the Fireman’s Hall in downtown San Bruno. On a day to day basis, the plan is managed by San Bruno City Staff. The urban design firm, MIG, is the City’s consultant for the Transit Corridors Plan.
How has the public participated to date?
The most exciting and interesting part of the planning process has been the community workshops. Over 100 San Bruno citizens have participated in two community workshops, which established the Plan vision and the development framework. We are also happy to meet with anyone individually to go over the plan and what it could mean to you. Please email or call us to set up an appointment. If you are business or property owner in the area, we would happy to meet with you at your property or place of business to review the plan.
An information booth was set up at the San Bruno Farmer’s Market on two Sundays, May 29 (Memorial Day weedend) and June 5, 2011 (Posy Parade). The booth included posters and handouts illustrating important aspects of the plan, and City Staff were on hand to answer questions and recieve comments from residents. About 75 residents stopped by to discuss the Plan.
