2023 State of the City: Our Resilient Future

For the first time, the San Mateo State of the City was hosted at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Community Center in my North Central neighborhood with Spanish translation available - taking City Hall to the people.

I presented on our City's progress on important initiatives over the last year and our upcoming goals and priorities to build a resilient community by creating prosperity, empowering people, and investing in placemaking.

Here are just some of the highlights that make us proud to be San Mateans:

  • I co-chaired Measure CC, which passed by over 70% and will bring an estimated $4.8M in net new annual revenue. My council priority this year includes establishing a community budgeting process to uplift all community voices to set our priorities.

  • We are saving $170M thanks to low interest loans financing our Clean Water Program, our $1B sustainable infrastructure project.

  • San Mateo met and exceeded our Climate Action Plan goals! Since 2005, we reduced GHG emmissions by 20%.

  • For the first time in 15 years, we opened a new park at Borel!

  • $3.3M in State and Federal funding will save the Marina Library and protect community resources East of 101.

  • There's much more to look forward to including permanant seating, public art, and landscaping coming soon to our B Street Pedestrian Mall!

The event included a panel discussion with community leaders San Mateo County District 2 Supervisor Noelia Corzo and Lisa Tealer, Executive Director of the Bay Area Community Health Advisory Council. We discussed local and regional efforts to foster a more resilient community.
