Supporting Business Development Downtown

Tonight the City Council took the first step in providing flexibility for business offices to co-exist with retail and restaurant space in Downtown San Mateo.

Under a new ordinance proposed by the City Council on a 5-0 vote, office spaces will now be able to take up ground floor space in downtown, provides at lease 75% of the front 60 feet of the space is used for retail or restaurant space.

While the final ordinance will be reviewed and voted on in 30 days, if passed the new law will give greater flexibility to fill long vacant space in our downtown, help to speed recovery of our local economy.

Thanks to the staff, businesses, and community who helped make this new law a reality!
