Child Care and Land Use Survey
Build Up for San Mateo County’s Children and the San Mateo County Child Care Partnership Council (LPC) are working to update the 2007, Child Care and Land Use Study — San Mateo County Child Care Coordinating Council which has been used by child care providers and interested potential operators to aid in comprehension of the various sectors regulating the development of early care and education spaces. To support this effort, Build Up has requested that every Planning Department in San Mateo County participate by providing information regarding their General Plan, Zoning Map, as well as an analysis and interpretation of their Municipal Code. The data collected will be used to develop resources for San Mateo County’s ECE community and recognize cities engaging in proactive work. We look forward to sharing the outcomes of this survey with you later this year.
