Franklin Street in Redwood City is just the first
of a number of projects eligible for the incentives
provided by San Mateos TOD Incentive Program.
Eligible projects can receive up to 2000 per bedroom
in the form of transportation enhancements that the
developer would otherwise have to provide. Housing
projects within one-third of a mile of a rail transit
station with a density of at least 40 units per acre
2654 bedrooms are to be built under the first two
funding cycles of this program. 448 had already been
constructed by mid 2002.
