A proposed apartment building near me with have studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments. I believe the plans call for 29 front doors. With this there will be something like 33 parking spaces. I asked a city official why they don't calculate parking based on the number of bedrooms and was told "that's not the protocol here presently." My building has 9 units and 18 parking spaces.


Is Ortiz nuts? Demand LESS parking so they can build MORE units? That is crazy.


Where do these council members live?? Are there any large developments being built west of El Camino?? Maybe by Peninsula Hospital but that is the only area I can think of right now??

More bedrooms and less parking means more crowded streets. Would they want this in their own neighborhoods?? That is the question I would like to ask them.


It's there delusion that we aren't going to want cars as we will walk to our non existent mass transit to get to work. Rent a zip car or only have one car per unit. It's happening up and down the Peninsula and neighborhoods within walking distance of the train are feeling the impact.


Pipe dream! As I drive down 101 in the mornings on my way to Foster City almost every car has just one person in it.
