Downtown Area Plan

San Mateo’s Downtown has historically been viewed as the center of the City. This Downtown Plan provides a framework for future decision making. The policies provide an overall direction to be followed and will be used to evaluate private development projects. Specific implementation measures guide the City’s and Redevelopment Agency’s actions regarding public improvements, and the ultimate disposition of publicly owned land in downtown. The Downtown Area Plan was adopted by the City Council on May 19, 2009.
