North Rollins Road Specific Plan


The North Rollins Specific Plan was adopted in September 2023.

The specific plan is an  implementation of the Burlingame General Plan, known as “Envision Burlingame.” The General Plan includes the following Goal:

  • Goal CC-12: Recreate Rollins Road as two distinct but complementary districts, with the southern two-thirds of the corridor supporting industrial and creative business enterprises and the northern one-third of the corridor reimagined as a live/work complete residential neighborhood – with parks, tree-lined streets, and a pedestrian orientation – that connects to the Millbrae multimodal transit station.

The objective of the Specific Plan is to provide the framework for this new focus, where residents and creative businesses have ready access to transit, supportive commercial businesses, and public and private open space amenities. Streetscape improvements will emphasize a pedestrian and bicycle focus, while still accommodating industrial related traffic through to Millbrae Avenue and Broadway.

The Specific Plan has evaluated the capacity of the existing roadway network, traffic circulation needs, parking needs, water, wastewater and stormwater systems requirements in order to meet the needs of proposed development, and make recommendations accordingly. An addendum to the General Plan Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was prepared to evaluate potential environmental impacts of the specific plan.
