What is Measure P?
Over a Quarter Century of:
(P)reservation – Measure P has maintained the historic, suburban character of downtown San Mateo.
(P)rotection – from overzealous developers who do not care about the character of San Mateo
(P)roven – nearly a quarter century of demonstrated effectiveness
(P)eople – the will of the residents of San Mateo, passed by a wide margin - twice!
(P)lan - forces proper planning for measured, intelligent growth that blends with our beautiful, historic neighborhoods
(P)roviding - Measure P mandates every residential development include affordable housing. More than half of the new below market rate housing stock in San Mateo built since 1991 is directly attributable to Measure P.
