The Boards and Commissions Leadership Institute (BCLI) is recruiting low-income and people of color from San Mateo County to join their next cohort of fellows. There will be an informational session on October 8 from 6pm to 7:30pm at 225 37th Avenue, San Mateo (Room 100). Applications are due October 20. BCLI is a six-month leadership program that supports low-income communities and people of color to access decision-making roles.
San Mateo County is working on its first ever active transportation plan that will be published in Spring 2020. Led by our colleagues at the Office of Sustainability, we are still seeking input (English and Spanish) on how to best strengthen the county’s walking and biking environments, particularly in denser neighborhoods such as North Fair Oaks where we see higher numbers of collisions involving people walking and biking. Please share your thoughts on how to support safe and active transportation!
