Who will be the lucky winners in this housing Powerball lottery? Where do I buy a ticket or three? Do I have to show ID? Can I stay forever? My, my, such a deal.


If they aren't listening, then they have ear plugs in as I rarely go anywhere lately that I don't hear residents talking about the monstrosities being built in town already and the lack of infrastructure to support this growth. How they are destroying Burlingame and its small time feel and making it another overgrown San Mateo or Millbrae. Unfortunately, the projects you see being built now, are just the beginning. By the time they are done, you won't recognize Burlingame anymore.


Every time I take a right on California Drive from Howard I cringe!!

The huge project being built does not blend in with the surrounding buildings one bit!

Only the beginning!


Monstrosities on the left of us, subsidies on the right of us. And what of us in the middle?


Here we are--almost six years later and the lottery for subsidized housing has begun. From the city e-newsletter:
