Vibrant Downtown

Since I first started running I had a vision of expanding our downtown, to extend the energy from Burlingame Avenue down Primrose, Park and Lorton and over to Howard, creating additional retail opportunities for the Mom and Pops that have been pushed off the Avenue and, ideally, creating a public square in the middle of it all as a gathering focal point for the City. My vision is a European-style plaza surrounded by retail and new residential units, bringing energy and vibrancy to our downtown.

This vision has taken longer to realize than I had expected but the very good news is that we have never been closer to achieving it. I truly believe that in five years we will have a buzz and a bustle in our downtown that makes us the envy of the Peninsula, bringing more visitors to our merchants and our fine restaurants and making Burlingame "the place you want to be."
