Amendment of the Bridgepointe Master Plan and Conditions of Approval to permit a new recreational use on or off-site of the Bridgepointe Center within the limits of the City of San Mateo. The applicant has proposed potential off-site improvements within the City of San Mateo including the following: all-weather turf fields and a restroom facility at Mariner's Island Park.
||The City of San Mateo City Council and the Planning Commission want to thank everyone for the letters, e-mails and petitions recently submitted on behalf of the San Mateo Ice Center. All of the letters, e-mails and petitions have been forwarded to the City Council members and Planning Commissioners. We understand the importance of the Ice Center in your and your children's lives.
The decision as to whether or not the Ice Center remains at the Bridgepointe Shopping Center is not one that can be made by the City Council. It is a private decision made between SPI holdings, and the owner of the Ice Rink. When the Ice Center's current lease expires, it will be up to SPI Holdings to decide whether or not to renew it. SPI Holdings has indicated that the lease will not be renewed. The City Council has no legal authority to intervene in that decision.
The City Council's previous decision in 1998 required a recreational use at the Bridgepointe Center as part of the Master Plan, but did not specifically require that the recreational use be an ice rink. The Master Plan set the parameters for the allowed land uses and general types of businesses at Bridgepointe Center, but did not require that specific businesses remain there indefinitely. The planning process and the approval of a Master Plan do not allow a jurisdiction to determine the specific businesses that will locate within a shopping center. The decision before the Council is whether the alternate recreational location and use proposed is acceptable. If not, another recreational use would be established at the Bridgepointe Center.
The City Council and Planning Commission understand that this is an important issue to many in the community and we appreciate the time you have taken to express your opinion.
