Share your ideas! Participate in 25th Avenue’s Pop-up Forum and Open House.
Stop by 25th Avenue throughout the day on Tuesday, March 1st to share your ideas for creating a more vibrant commercial area. The San Mateo community is invited to participate in two events that will generate ideas about ways to enhance this neighborhood commercial area.
The first is a pop-up activity taking place in front of Reach and Teach from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. An Open House will follow that evening from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Lighthouse Room located in the administrative offices of the First Presbyterian Church. Those participating will have the opportunity to learn more about the 25th Avenue Improvement Initiative, provide their ideas to improve the aesthetic and economic vibrancy of the area, and gain a better understanding of the PG&E Undergrounding Project as well as a potential streetscape improvement project.
“These two events are a way for the community to connect in a casual, low-key environment. It’s an opportunity where neighbors and businesses can easily interact with one another while sharing ideas about ways to improve and bring more activity to the commercial area,” says Matt Bronson, San Mateo Assistant City Manager. “We are looking forward to hearing from the broader 25th Avenue community.”
The 25th Avenue Improvement Initiative formed last August in response to the PG&E utility undergrounding project and interest from local business groups as well as 25th Avenue businesses and residents to identify a process for improving the commercial neighborhood, engaging the broader 25th Avenue community, and creating consistent communication channels during construction.
