Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 11:30 am – 1:30 pm
San Mateo Public Library – Oak Room
55 West 3rd Avenue, San Mateo, CA 94402

Join us and hear from local experts on child care, education, and healthcare, as we explore how our community is managing the high cost of living in San Mateo County. We will share highlights of this year’s annual city survey focused on the cost of living and solutions to housing, transportation, and income challenges. Additionally, new data from the Indicators Report will reveal fresh statistics on income, jobs, agriculture, energy, and waste.

San Mateo’s Public Library offers a prime opportunity for active transportation! Walk, bike, bus, take transit or carpool to the luncheon and win a small gift! You will also be entered into the Spare the Air annual raffle. Looking for a carpool partner? Sign up here
