Upcoming Transit Village Meetings:

The San Carlos Planning Commission will hold a public hearing in the City Council Chambers, San Carlos City Hall, 600 Elm Street, San Carlos, Monday, May 18, 2015 at 7:00 p.m., for the purpose of hearing and considering all comments of all persons interested in or concerned with:
 
The Design Review application submitted by San Mateo County Transit District (“SamTrans”) to develop an approximately 4.26-acre site with a new transit center and commuter parking. The site is located within the Railroad Corridor generally bounded by El Camino Real to the west and the Caltrain tracks to the east, extending from midblock between San Carlos Avenue and Cherry Street on the north, almost to Arroyo Avenue on the south. The proposed development includes:

  • A new Transit Center providing dedicated areas for busses, shuttles, taxis, a passenger drop-off area, and bus layover parking.
  • Commuter parking containing 261 parking spaces.
  • Landscaping throughout the Transit Center.
  • Improved streetscape with wider sidewalks and street trees, lighting, and street furnishings consistent with the Grand Boulevard Project.

The site is designated Mixed Use, Medium Density in the San Carlos General Plan and is zoned Planned Development. The San Carlos Transit Village Planned Development Plan (PD Plan), which included the new Transit Center, was approved by the City Council in November 2013. An Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was certified for the San Carlos Transit Village Project in conjunction with the approval of the PD Plan.
