Parking continues to be a top issue for the North Fair Oaks community. The County of San Mateo is actively pursuing solutions to the lack of parking in the area, including creating more public parking spaces, studying current parking conditions, increasing parking enforcement, and more.

Public Parking Lot at 3060-3080 Middlefield Road

The County purchased three adjacent parcels located at the corner of Middlefield Road and 2nd Ave (see image below). These parcels were developed to create more public parking in the heart of the North Fair Oaks Community. 

Community Meeting - Thursday, October 13, 2016

The County held a community meeting in North Fair Oaks on October 13, 2016 to gain community input on how the new parking lot will be designed. Over 50 people attended the meeting, and had the opportunity to discuss different options for the configuration of the parking lot, lighting, plants and landscaping. The County will take the community input into consideration as a final design is created. 


Demolition of Existing Structures

As of November 2016, the previously existing structures on 3060-3080 Middlefield Road have been demolished and cleared.


Parking Solutions Community Meeting

On January 13, 2016,  County employees met with members of the community to discuss parking solutions for the North Fair Oaks Community. Discussion topics included asking attendees where they currently park in NFO, what additional parking locations on Middlefield Road the County should explore, and how they believe parking on Middlefield Road should be handled.

2013 Parking Study and Strategy

In 2013, the County of San Mateo contracted with the firms of Dyett & Bhatia and Nelson/Nygaard to conduct a Parking Study & Strategy in North Fair Oaks. The Parking Study and Strategy were identified in the Community Plan as an action item. It expands on the recommendations of the Community Plan to create a more detailed implementation program that offers parking demand and supply solutions specifically tailored to North Fair Oaks' current and projected conditions.
