  • Today was a historic day for the community of North Fair Oaks! The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to approve the North Fair Oaks Community Council’s 3-lane redesign recommendation for the stretch of Middlefield Road between Pacific and 5th Avenues. The Council's vision is to create a vibrant downtown section with wider sidewalks for pedestrians and space for park benches, greenery, and public art. it also includes bike lanes to encourage cycling. I am very proud of the amazing effort to engage the community.

    Kudos to Peggy Jensen, Deputy County Manager for her leadership, to Pat Brown, Lilia Ledesma, Ashley Quintana and Ellie Dallman of the North Fair Oaks Forward team for their excellent outreach to the community, and to Linda Lopez and the members of the North Fair Oaks Community Council. Your efforts helped ensure that the community's hopes and dreams were heard and honored.
