Input on Your Home Having to Go All Electric?
Our May newsletters brought forward that S&I Commissioner Adam Loraine “favored looking at end dates” for gas use "for new AND existing buildings" for San Mateans. This desire by some on the Sustainability & Infrastructure Commission goes beyond state requirements resulting in some residents having serious concerns over costs involved to replace their gas appliances. The Commission meets June 8th to discuss this further. If you wish to ask questions or share concerns, you can reach them at:
We plan to host the Climate Action Team in July to hear the flipside of this issue and perhaps how the public may offset some of the large costs to move away from gas.
What is the Future of Hillsdale Mall?
Hillsdale Mall offered some events on-site in May where residents could leave notes about what they wished to see to replace the mall. Post-It notes and stickers weren't the only opinion options, as a company has been contracted for this outreach effort and their representatives also talked with participants. Completely missing was anything property owners may be currently be considering. Representatives stated this outreach would help to provide initial direction and that as summer porgressed, residents would be advised of the next step in their process.
