Earlier this year, a group of Glens residents asked the town to double the maximum house size in the neighborhood, in some cases to enable them to stay in Woodside and accommodate growing families.
But that idea was dismissed because such a change would trigger the need for an environmental impact report that would take into consideration such issues as affordable housing and sewer capacity.
The new development would increase rather than lower the cost of housing in Woodside, and sewers in the Glens are already at capacity, according to the Planning Department.
The Glens neighborhood was originally composed of small summer homes for San Francisco residents, so many of the homes are on small lots, and some have minimal setbacks from streets.
Development is also constrained by narrow streets and restricted access to the neighborhood for residents and emergency vehicles.
The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m., with the Glens matters set to be taken up at 7:30 p.m. It will take place at Independence Hall, 2955 Woodside Road in Woodside.
