Summit probes housing desires 

Results from a countywide housing summit suggest a majority want more housing choices, including higher-density developments, organizers said.

More than two-thirds of participants believe more housing needs to be created in San Mateo County. Threshold 2008, a nonprofit organization formed to engage the public on housing issues, held the summit March 15-16 to discuss pros and cons of different options to deal with the county’s future housing needs.

About 68 percent of the 400 participants said they felt the county’s vital services such as education, fire, police and health would suffer if there continues to be a housing shortage. More than three-quarters said they believe new housing would increase the vitality of the region.
