Affordability

I support ways to improve affordability for Burlingame's residents and workforce:

  • Thoughtful land use policies that accommodate new housing units near Caltrain stations where residents can choose to live a “car-lite” lifestyle
  • Housing for all income levels to ensure our economy, workforce, and seniors on a fixed income can thrive in Burlingame  
  • Policy incentives for developers to create affordable housing for critical members of Burlingame’s workforce like teachers, health aides, maintenance workers, retail, hotel, and restaurant workers
  • Use of developer fees to create new affordable housing, preserve existing affordable housing, and provide emergency assistance to Burlingame residents
  • A balanced, regional approach to thoughtful housing and job growth
  • Prioritizing community benefits on public land over private commercial enterprise
  • Economic opportunity for workers and businesses
