RESOLUTION: ACCEPTING THE SAN MATEO COUNTY FACILITY MASTER PLAN (MASTER PLAN) AS PREPARED BY ARCHITECT HELLMUTH, OBATA + KASSABAUM, INC., (HOK)
RESOLVED, by the Board of Supervisors of the County of San Mateo, State of California, that
WHEREAS, by Resolution No. 071107, this Board of Supervisors approved office standards for space allocation; and appointed three subcommittees, consisting of two supervisors each, to provide input to the Master Plan for the three main campuses in Redwood City, San Mateo and the Tower Road Complex in the San Mateo Highlands; and
WHEREAS, the feedback gathered during November 2010 meetings with each of the subcommittees has been incorporated into the Master Plan; and
WHEREAS, the Master Plan study finds that there are no formal guidelines and space planning standards for the allocation of County work space; and that there is a high percentage of leased space in the County portfolio; and
WHEREAS, lack of such guidelines has resulted in inefficient space usage and inefficient delivery of service to the community; and
WHEREAS, there is high cost associated with occupying space, moves and reconfigurations; and
WHEREAS, HOK evaluated and made recommendations for the long-term optimal development of the three main County campuses as well as guiding principles for future space allocation.
NOW THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY DETERMINED AND ORDERED, that the recommended San Mateo County Facility Master Plan (Master Plan) and its guiding principles, as developed through the County of San Mateo Facility Master Planning process, are accepted and approved.
