County government

• The Board of Supervisors will consider for a second time how to adjust district boundaries for future district elections. The board requested new maps at its last meeting and will consider them along with previously submitted drafts. The map must be chosen by Nov. 5.

At the same meeting, the board will authorize $5 million in each of the next two fiscal years to subsidize SamTrans service for youth, the elderly and the disabled. The allocation is part of the county’s voter-approved Measure A half-cent sales tax revenue.

The Board of Supervisors meets 9 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22 in Board Chambers, 400 Government Center, Redwood City.

City government

• The San Carlos Planning Commission will consider reviewing a list of East San Carlos Quality of Life Improvement issues and forwarding them to the City Council for consideration. The issues are matters raised during the Transit Village hearings that are not directly related to its approval but which the city wants to look at. The list includes working with SamTrans to address garbage issues on Old County Road, illegal homeless encampments near the Caltrain station, prohibiting dirt haul routes on Holly Street, lower speed limits on Old County Road, installation of more trees and possible creation of a “quiet zone” where train whistle blowing is banned.

The Planning Commission meets 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21 at City Hall, 600 Elm St., San Carlos.

• The Redwood City Council will hear a presentation on its downtown parking study which surveyed people and looked at car occupancy and duration to help assess the need for more parking and mitigate the loss of space during Block 2 construction.

The City Council meets 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21 at City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road, Redwood City.

• The South San Francisco Planning Commission voted 5-0, with two commissioners absent, to approve a use permit modification and design review allowing for the expansion of the existing gas station at the Costco in South San Francisco. It will upgrade from 16 to 20 fueling stations and add a new automated carwash.
