In 2009, all cities in San Mateo County and the rest of the Bay Area will be making very important land use planning decisions as they update the housing elements of their general plans. Some cities will also be updating their entire general plans. The decisions made during these planning processes will have long term consequences, affecting both current and future generations.

As we make these decisions, a number of issues need to be considered to ensure these decisions will meet both the current and future needs of our community. Important Questions To Discuss Now About the Future of Our Community provides background and a framework for discussing some of these key issues and provides suggestions for how you can become involved in discussing these important questions and making them part of the decision making process in your community.

Thank you for reading and distributing widely.
