Each Commission establishes a 2-year work plan that is in line with the City Council's goals, which guides the commissions' activities and projects. 

Recruitment for the Commission vacancies is open until April 5, 2019 , at 5 pm . Download the application here .

Work began the week of March 18 from the San Mateo County/Santa Clara County line to Whipple Avenue on the San Mateo 101 Express Lanes Project. This is a multiyear, multiagency project to reduce traffic congestion and encourage carpooling and transit use on U.S. Highway 101 in San Mateo County. 

The project will create 22 miles of express lanes on U.S. Highway 101 from the San Mateo County/Santa Clara County border to I-380 in San Bruno and seamlessly connect from express lanes also being constructed in Santa Clara County.
