This coming week, after most of December off, the City will hold two meetings.
On Monday, Jan. 4 the City Council will meet to hold a public hearing on the Kaiser Medical building proposal in the Bay Meadows area. A copy of the agenda and items for the meeting can be viewed here.
On Wednesday, Jan. 6, the Parks and Recreation Commission will meet to consider creation of a pilot program to allow dogs off-leash in certain parks at certain hours. Currently, all dogs must be on a leash at all times in San Mateo parks.
The leash law issue is something I discussed with many of you over the past year. City Staff and the Commissioners of the Parks and Recreation Department have worked hard to listen to the ideas and concerns of all citizens and have crafted a pilot program which addresses many of those needs. To chime in on this issue, you can review the staff report here, and email your comments to City Staff, or attend the Parks and Recreation Commission meeting on Jan. 6.
