  • What are your perspectives as relate to the relationship between the Recreation Facility and the surrounding park?

    I prefer the unprogrammed space to a recreational facility of any kind.
    If there had to be one, I would prefer facility to be backed up against the north western fenceline with primary entrance facing SM County Events Center. There should NOT be a parking lot within the 12 acres.
    The relationship with the park--if a building is necessary--should be pedestrian oriented, NOT CAR ORIENTED.

  • What is your vision for a recreation facility at Bay Meadows Park?

    My vision for a recreational facility at Bay Meadows Park--if it's necessary to build one--is less about the final programming of building and more about access/parking and the building's relationship with existing park. The building should be set far back into the north-north west corner of the site and have primary auto/bus/parking access through SM County Event Center lot---perhaps with an entrance off S. Delaware near border with Nueva school. Bikes and pedestrians should have access through a path from 28th Ave. If there is a building, it should have a 'human scale' relationship with the park---and be welcoming to people more than cars on the 28th Ave side. No shadows on whatever grassy unprogrammed areas you leave in tact. That park should have more than just playing fields for people to enjoy outside.

Speak Up San Mateo! has two participation channels:

  • The Registered Channel: Sign in before or just after you submit your response. Either way, Community Feedback will show your response on this website.
  • The Unregistered Channel: Don't sign in and remain anonymous. Community Feedback will just share your response with San Mateo staff.

Note: The first time you sign in, you'll need to register (establish an account on Speak Up San Mateo!). Registration is free.

The City of San Mateo has contracted with Community Feedback to monitor responses shown on this website.

  • To prevent any single user from dominating the forum, the City of San Mateo restricts the number of responses any one user can post on selected topics. Registration helps Community Feedback enforce this restriction.
  • Users, staff and government leaders often want to know the neighborhood from which a response is posted. Community Feedback uses registration to show the neighborhood next to each response (not the address).
  • If a user posts a response that does not meet the City of San Mateo guidelines for civility, Community Feedback uses the user's email address to invite the user to resolve the issue.

Community Feedback will get your contact information. The company is under contract with the City of San Mateo to hold it in strict confidence per their privacy policy.

  • Since you'll see your own response on Speak Up San Mateo!, you'll be able to confirm that your response was posted as you intended.
  • You'll be able to change and/or delete your response as long as the topic is open.

Yes. Sign out, then set your privacy preference to be "No - just show it without my name to staff". You won't need to register.

While no authentication procedure can perfectly detect every fraudulent registration, Community Feedback is able to secure the registered channel against systematic fraud: cases where users submit enough statements with fraudulent registrations to sway the overall interpretation of the feedback.

Community Feedback is unable to secure the unregistered channel against systematic fraud, because unregistered users are anonymous.

Neither the registered nor the unregistered channel represent a certified voting system or ballot box - and that caveat is footnoted on every page of feedback. Instead, both are additional channels for feedback to government.

Users can participate on the registered channel (by signing in) or on the unregistered channel (by remaining anonymous). The City of San Mateo offers both channels in order to broaden participation and maximize decision makers' insights.

The registered channel enables users to assure decision makers that their feedback comes from a real person in a specific neighborhood. It also enables users to participate in a public discussion on the website, as well as manage their own response after posting it.

The unregistered channel is for users who want to provide quick feedback without registering, and/or whose privacy concerns would prevent them from participating if required to register. Because many users with valuable insights will only share them anonymously, this channel gives decision makers the option to consider those insights in their deliberations.
