BHNA Report on the April San Mateo Homeowners United Meeting

RodBy BHNA Board Member Rod Linhares attended & reports:

A primary topic was the Wastewater Treatment Plant. The purpose of

establishing a new Treatment Plant is to upgrade San Mateo’s wastewater collection system, which would be accomplished in three ways: replacing aging infrastructure and facilities, meeting current and future regulatory requirements and ensuring wet weather capacity, and protecting the Bay. Additional education for the entire city and corresponding discussion will be forthcoming.

Following the Wastewater Plant presentation, there was a very brief discussion on Measure AA, the Bay Clean Water, Pollution Prevention and Habitat Restoration Measure. A flyer that opposed the measure was circulated, too.

A SMUHA letter to the City was read regarding proposed changes to the Poplar Creek golf course, expressing the need for recreational amenities in San Mateo, and SMUHA’s desire to be involved in discussions concerning potential golf course alterations.  SMUHA representatives endorsed the letter, and it was submitted

April 22nd.
