During the past several years, momentum behind the Complete Streets (or sustainable streets) movement has continued to increase, fueled by a public desire for walkable, bikeable streets with options aside from driving. A national survey released in September 2012 showed that 55% of Americans want to drive less, but 74% say they have no choice [1]. Public sentiment has begun placing greater value on having other options available, whether for commuting, trips to the grocery store, or simply for recreation. While much of San Mateo is safe and convenient, a Sustainable Streets Plan presents an opportunity for the City to formalize a framework that will guide the development of a first-class transportation network that will allow for safe movement by any individual whether by car, on bike or on foot. Streets represent a large portion of the public space, and as such, have the opportunity to have a significant impact on wellness, recreation, ecology, economic development, and interaction with public spaces. This planning effort built upon existing planning efforts such as the Citywide Pedestrian Master Plan and Bicycle Master Plan to ensure that priority networks throughout the City can be implemented, while also ensuring that all streets provide a basic level of access and mobility for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users. The city's approach in developing this plan carried one key goal: implementation of sustainable streets in the City of San Mateo for the benefit of our residents present and future.

New economic study shows California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) protects the environment without stunting economic growth. CEQA requires state and local agencies to identify the potentially significant environmental impacts of proposed plans and development projects, and then to avoid or mitigate those impacts when feasible. This report was designed to closely examine the arguments and assumptions underlying the most current calls for changes to the law.
