Starting Monday, April 1st, the City of San Mateo will post about several new Commission seats that will be open for the public to apply to (vacancies are due to individuals' terms of service expiring).

The current board/commission openings include:
  - Community Relations Commission
  - Parks & Recreation Commission
  - Planning Commission
  - Library Commission
  - Sustainability & Infrastructure Commission
  - Mosquito & Vector Control District


Applications are due by 5 PM on April 16

GREEN EXCHANGE - APRIL 27th

Your March newsletter has the details!  You can also email us at YourBHNA@gmail.com.  Take advantage of this opportunity to meet our local Seed Librarian, who will share seed packets and information.  You can also come to share and exchange your own seeds, plants, cuttings, pots and garden bounty!

NEXT BHNA MEMBER MEETING - MAY 21ST

While we will have the Green Exchange event for members in April, the next formal meeting will be May 21st. Details may be found in the May Member Newsletter.  We will be hosting Matt Fabry, the new Director of Public Works, who has been kept very busy as he's risen through the ranks in San Mateo.  Matt will update us on where the Flood Tax money is going and share the pressing items for the Public Works Dept., incuding a singal installation at Hillsdale and Alameda.  Our second speaker, Monika Lee will be asking for input from the community to create some new programs through Age-Friendly San Mateo.  We look forward to seeing you!

CITY COUNCIL APPROVES ALMOST $250k TO SPEND ON BALLOT MEASURE TO REMOVE MEASURE Y

Last month, our Council approved funds to be spent on consulting & surveys for a 2024 November ballot measure so San Mateans can vote to remove or keep Measure Y (the building height limit measure for new buildings).  Resident voters passed Measure Y in November 2020.  The resident group San Mateans for Responsive Government ask the City WHY a ballot measure needs  to be done in 2024 to try to remove new development height standards.  See more at www.SmarterGrowthSM.com.
