Thank you for your interest in Community Conversations - Housing in San Mateo.

We are so impressed by the turnout we had for our Community Conversations: Housing in San Mateo events in April and May! You can now read the meeting summary from the May 18 convening, during which 90 community members gathered for a discussion about an issue that affects us all – housing.

Participants discussed both short- and long-term options for how the community can address housing availability and affordability in San Mateo. With the support of the County’s Home for All team and Common Knowledge, we had great success engaging folks throughout the community during pop-up events and two facilitated discussions. 

Visit our project page at to see the presentations and meeting summary reports from both the April 27 and May 18 events.
