Plans to subdivide two prominent Woodside properties Plans to subdivide two prominent Woodside properties (April 21, 2004)

Plans to subdivide two of Woodside's most prominent properties -- the Brown Adobe and the former Phillips Brooks School land -- are up for review at this week's Woodside Planning Commission meeting, which starts at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 21, at Independence Hall, 2955 Woodside Road.

A three-parcel subdivision of the nearly 42-acre Schroll estate at 3000 Portola Road is proposed. The property is the site of one of San Mateo County's oldest structures, the Charles Brown Adobe. The Planning Commission is scheduled to review a map dividing the property into one 31.1-acre lot and two 5.3-acre lots.

Also set for review are permits related to a five-lot subdivision on the former Phillips Brooks School property on Lawler Ranch Road, just west of Interstate 280 between Sand Hill and Woodside roads.

Woodside Developers LLC is seeking permissions related to building roadways and bridges for the subdivision, including permits for grading and doing construction in a stream corridor.

A proposed trail easement is also to be reviewed for consistency with the town's general plan.

For more information, call Woodside's Planning and Building Department at 851-6790.
