According to our last Census, San Mateo County has 13,194 vacant housing units.

2000 2010
Vacant housing units 6,473 2.5% 13,194 4.9%

So with Redwood City building 1,000 and Menlo Park 1.925 more housing units, I'm not sure this next statement applies.

"San Mateo County has significantly more jobs than housing, requiring many workers to commute long distances. Do you support additional housing to address this jobs-housing imbalance? Where in San Mateo County should additional housing be built?"

Don't miss out on the discussion!
