Fact Sheets

Sustainable Streets San Mateo Fact Sheet (February 6, 2015)
This fact sheet provides you with general information about the project, including what the project is about, definitions of Complete Streets and Green Streets, and a timeline for the duration of the project.

Healthy Streets San Mateo Fact Sheet (June 12, 2014)
This fact sheet presents facts about the link between transportation and health. Transportation plans and policies can help improve residents’ health by promoting active transportation such as bicycling and walking, improving access to food, shopping and other daily needs, and creating neighborhoods that are destinations rather than funnels for fast-moving vehicles.

Sustainable Streets Make Cents (October 9, 2014)
This fact sheet provides information about how sustainable streets are a smart investment to a community. Higher home values, lower commercial vacancies, decreased household transportation costs, and enhanced transportation equity are a few examples how sustainable streets can help a community.

Workshop Materials

The community has participated in two public workshops as part of this project. The links below take you to the presentations and exercise summaries for both workshops.

Community Workshop (June 12, 2014)

This workshop provided an opportunity for the community to see how the Sustainable Streets Plan is unfolding and work with a team of experts to continue shaping its vision for complete and sustainable streets throughout San Mateo.
