Consider allowing a Rec./Medical Marijuana Dispensary to fill one of those empty storefronts.
An "Up-Scale" place.
All the "Disposable Income People" that live on the Peninsula would be drawn to Burlingame for the "Atmosphere."
Restaurants, Real Estate, Hospitality, and BART, SFO, AM Track, and San Francisco.
An Upscale Marijuana "Health Club."
I am sure there a hundreds of entrepreneurs' World Wide, that would JUMP at the chance to have access to a "Hub" such as the City of Burlingame, CA.

The "Disposable Income People" got that way by not smoking too much dope. But now I am breaking my own rule against responding to your nonsense.

Burlingame needs more public transit and better public transit, not more parking spaces.

At the very least, Burlingame should cover existing parking spots with photovoltaics so that the area is put to good use.

Finally, a cannabis dispensary would be an enormous benefit to the city if we allowed one to move into one of the empty spaces on Burlingame Ave.

Forget public transit. It will never meet enough needs in the Bay Area. The self-driving shared cars will help with parking in the long run but what Burlingame should do is sell the parking lot to a developer of market priced units (much better price) and use most of the money for the parking garage and some should go to the school district to help figure out where all the kids will sit.

It Don't Come Easy

Let's agree not to use San Carlos as a model for downtown development. It is has already lost its quaint appeal and looks more like an Orange County suburb than the classy little quiet respite it was once known for.

How awful that we now have a 4 story monstrosity and PAMF allowed to pull out of the deal.... how can this be? - after the businesses around there suffering through the building.

No dispensaries please on the Avenew, the smoke smell is already intolerable.

A cannabis dispensary on Burlingame Avenue is a great idea. We already have a liquor dispensary. Plenty of us with money spend some of it at a cannabis dispensary, and also spend money on the same things everyone else does. With no dispensary anywhere between San Jose and South SF, it would draw in a lot of people.

Common Since Camille.
As far as those with "disposable income," Dear Hillsider...
Those are the people who voted for Medical and Recreational Marijuana.

Joe

@Easy, agreed that San Carlos is struggling to maintain its charm as well, but at least Laurel Ave. still has a number of Mom & Pop shops and I can only look on with envy at Savanna Jazz.
