About the City of San Mateo
The City of San Mateo is a scenic and dynamic San Francisco Peninsula community of over 97,000 residents, ideally located at the crossroads of three major freeways. San Mateo provides links with San Francisco to the north, San Jose to the South, Half Moon Bay to the west and the East Bay to the east. In addition to San Mateo’s proximity to both the San Francisco and San Jose International Airports, the city enjoys the CalTrain line that provides daily commute train service from San Jose to San Francisco.

San Mateo is a diverse and vibrant regional hub that boasts a very high quality of life marked by its great neighborhoods, schools and outstanding libraries and parks. It is the second largest city in San Mateo County. Downtown San Mateo offers a variety of exciting opportunities for shopping, dining, and entertainment. In addition to the downtown, there are a number of neighborhoods serving commercial districts and two of the County’s largest regional shopping centers.

The city’s growth is carefully planned by elected officials and citizen volunteers who are on the many advisory boards and commissions. A major multi-decade redevelopment project planned on the site of the Bay Meadows race track will provide new office, residential, and retail space. The City pays special attention to encourage development that bolsters the economy and yet maintains the quality of life for established neighbor hoods as expected by businesses and residents alike.
