Tuesday: Housing, airport noise on county supervisors' agenda

 

The results of a year-long joint effort by San Mateo County's cities and county government to address the imbalance between jobs and housing in the county will be on the agenda of the Board of Supervisors when it meets on Tuesday, June 28. The meeting starts at 9 a.m. in the board's chambers at 400 County Center in Redwood City.

The supervisors will also vote on a resolution to form a $10 million fund that would allow the county to help organizations purchase existing low- or moderate-income housing in return for a promise to continue affordable rents for 30 years.

An update on the county's ongoing San Carlos Airport Aircraft Disturbance Study will also be presented. A report from public works director Jim Porter says that once Surf Air begins flying the new airport approach recently approved by the Federal Aviation Administration, the county will hold public meetings and survey residents and airport users.

The county has hired an aviation consultant, an aviation noise consultant and a polling firm to help with the research. Reports from the consultants with recommendations for policy and fee changes, plus possible implementation of practices used by other airports should be ready by the first week of August, Mr. Porter reports.

Board consideration of specific changes will probably occur in October, Mr. Porter's report says.
