Chapin Avenue Feasibility Study

City Project No. 85240
Scope: The City of Burlingame is conducting a feasibility study to look at converting Chapin Avenue, between El Camino Real and Primrose Road, into a “green street.” Over the next several months, the City will be engaging with various stakeholders, such as residents, business owners, and property owners, to present project context, opportunities, and constraints of the project, as well as to solicit feedback that re-envisions Chapin Avenue.

Green Street Principles
The Urban Street Stormwater Guide  by  the National Association of City Transportation Officials identifies six principles to a green street:
  1. Protect & Restore Natural Resources
  2. Promote Health, Equity, & Human Habitat
  3. Design for Safety & Mobility
  4. Design for Life Cycle
  5. Design for Resilience
  6. Optimize for Performance
To learn more about these principles or find a case study, please visit the Urban Street Stormwater Guide web page.
