Welcome to the Sustainable Streets San Mateo Project Website

2012_0902_N29

Greetings and thank you for visiting the Sustainable Streets San Mateo project website. We are about halfway through this exciting 2-year project which intends to bring complete, sustainable streets to San Mateo over the next decades to come. What are Complete Streets you ask? According to the National Complete Streets Coalition, they are “routinely planned, designed, operated and maintained with the consideration of the needs and safety of all travelers along and across the entire public right of way. This includes people of all ages and abilities who are walking; driving vehicles such as cars, trucks, motorcycles or buses; bicycling; using transit, or traveling with mobility aids; and freight shippers.”

This project is being led by City staff who are committed to developing streets that are safe for our children and meet the needs of our many commuters. In addition, we’ve brought on a team of experts who will help our City take best practices from around the country to develop a comprehensive and effective plan to bring Sustainable Streets to San Mateo. Please be sure to join our mailing list if you’d like to stay up to date on project progress or continue to check this webpage for project updates. We are really excited to engage our citizens, young and old, drivers, walkers and everyone in-between. We want to hear how you use our streets and also hear how you would like to use those streets in the future.
