The first public hearing and discussion to review
the General Plan's DRAFT Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) will take place by the Burlingame Planning Commission on Wednesday, 7/11.  The General Plan serves as the roadmap for how Burlingame will grow over the next 25 years.  During this meeting, our Planning Commission will discuss the environmental impact of allowing additional housing growth primarily in the northern part of our City near Millbrae BART/Caltrain station, and additional commercial growth primarily on our Bayfront. Staff will summarize input from the public and Planning Commission for City Council to consider before adopting the final General Plan later this fall.  Learn more about the three-year process to update our City's General Plan at www.envisionburlingame.org


4) Sunday, 8/26/18, Coffee and Conversation with Emily @ Il Piccolo Caffe, 1219 Broadway, 3:30-4:30PM

Please save the date to join me at Il Piccolo Caffe on Sunday, 8/26 from 3:00-4:00 PM for conversation and Q&A about local policy issues.  Bring your questions and concerns about our City -- and bring a friend!  Coffee and refreshments provided at no taxpayer expense. This is one of my favorite ways to communicate with residents and hear what matters to you. 

Take care and have a safe and wonderful summer.  I plan to send my next newsletter towards the middle of August.
