MEASURE P - DOING MORE FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING

MEASURE P STANDS UP FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING

Measure P amendments to the San Mateo 2030 General Plan

• Voters found that initiative Measures H and P “encouraged the production of San Mateo’s fair share of
affordable housing,” and “encouraged the development of affordable housing units within the City limits.”


• In 1991, and again in 2004 “the voters determined that it was necessary to increase the City’s commitment to
the production of affordable housing.”


• “Encourage the provision of affordable housing by the private sector.”


• “Require construction or subsidy of new affordable housing as a condition for approval of any commercial
development which affects the demand for housing in the City.”


• “Maintain an inclusionary housing ordinance.”


• “At a minimum, all projects which include more than 10 residential units, including mixed-use projects,
shall be required to include 10% of the residential units for exclusive use as affordable housing units.”


• "Develop…a commercial/housing linkage program.”


• “Give priority processing to applications which include substantial proportions of affordable housing.”


• "San Mateo’s multi-family zoning districts allow relatively high densities in an effort to encourage the
production of housing.”


• “Encourage the construction of affordable housing in the redevelopment of commercial areas.”
