o On Monday, the Burlingame Planning Commission will give the final approval on a temporary fire station -- a step toward testing shared fire services among four cities.
San Bruno, Millbrae, Burlingame and Hillsborough gave the go-ahead to continue exploring shared administrative services in 2011. One of the first steps was creating a temporary station, which is expected to open this summer. Under the proposal, stations on Hillside Drive in Burlingame and Crestview Drive in Millbrae would be closed. A new station would then be placed somewhere within the three-mile distance between the two stations. Plans to build such a station at 1675 Skyline Blvd. in Burlingame were reviewed by the Planning Commission Monday and will return for approval March 25.
The project includes a 1,440-square-foot fire house building, 576 square feet of office space and a 2,730-square-foot apparatus building to house two full-size fire trucks with drive-through capacities, according to a staff report. A special permit will be required for the apparatus building which will be 32 feet tall, two feet higher than the 30 foot height limit in the area.
At the same meeting, the commission will vote to amend a conditional use permit for Pizzaeria Delfina, which plans to open at 1444 Burlingame Ave.
The commission meets 7 p.m. Monday, March 25 at City Hall, 501 Primrose Road.
o On Thursday, the San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District Board of Trustees approved Mary Kay Going for the position of assistant superintendent of education services effective July 1.
