Better Business Burro says that talks have broken down between Friend Hotel Developers and the City of Pacifica regarding development of a hotel at the city’s old Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) site in Sharp Park. The city survey (click link above) shows about 2-1 support for building a hotel at the site, but that is based on a mere 80 survey respondents. Out of a city of 40,000, that's about one-tenth of 1 percent.

San Mateo County Transportation Authority (SMCTA) has launched its Get Us Moving (GUM) campaign. Unfortunately, we cannot think of a worse acronym for a public transportation initiative. The word "gum" has all kinds of counterintuitive, negative connotations, especially in a transportation context. "Gum" connotes "stuck" and "sticky" as in "stuck in traffic" and "buses have chewing gum stuck on the floor and under the seats." Please take SMCTA's online survey, and give your honest feedback. Tell them that GUM is the dumbest acronym ever.
All together now: one, two, three, four. San Mateo County has a new website combining Assessor, Clerk, Recorder, and Elections Department (ACRE).
In fact, all of San Mateo County real estate is going gangbusters.
