About Community Conversations:  Part of a three-phase civic engagement initiative which launched in March 2008, Community Conversations are smaller scale dialogues which reach deeply into neighborhoods, organizations, and settings to allow additional public input, often underserved populations, into countywide housing solutions in local communities. Participants have the opportunity to express their views on housing choices in San Mateo County within a neutral forum as well as increase understanding, exchange perspectives and share input into countywide solutions.  

About Threshold 2009:  A nonprofit, citizen-driven effort to engage the people of San Mateo County in decision making about housing issues. Threshold 2009 is working with Redwood City and other partners to provide an inclusive forum to build the public voice on housing choices.
