The Housing, Opportunity, Priorities and Education (HOPE) Community Advisory Committee was created to help prioritize investments in affordable housing that use funds collected from fees on commercial development.
The primary intent has been to create homes that are for workers in Burlingame whose wages cannot cover market rate rents or home prices. Some examples (not necessarily exhaustive):
- People who work here now and have to commute in from a location with a lower cost of living
- People who live here now and are precariously housed due to high cost of rents compared to their wages
- People who lived or worked in Burlingame previously
