Makeover in progress for our sidewalks in North Fair Oaks!

The Public Works team has been hard at work sprucing up the sidewalks of North Fair Oaks by washing them thoroughly with high pressure. In order to reduce their impact on traffic and the pedestrians who frequent the businesses of Middlefield Road, the sidewalks were cleaned overnight from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. There is still work to be done and these efforts will continue from 2nd to 7th Avenue.

We thank the County Department of Public Works for their work in helping to beautify North Fair Oaks!

Who keeps your streets clean and safe in North Fair Oaks?

Roberto Montes (left) and José Rico-Ruiz. The duo are newly tasked by the San Mateo County Department of Public Works with doing everything from planting flowers to cracking down on illegal landfills.

Both Mr. Montes and Mr. Rico-Ruiz are intimately familiar with the North Fair Oaks area and the needs and challenges of our community. Working with other county maintenance officers, the team manages maintenance requests and mobilizes to provide additional assistance where it is needed most.

We are thrilled to have them join our community beautification efforts!

5th Avenue corridor improvements are underway!
Overgrown vegetation and weeds have been removed and replaced with drought resistant trees and flowers, efforts are underway to clear the area of ​​trash and a new entrance sign sculpture has been added!



Dave Modena (Road Maintenance Supervisor) and the Public Works Department crew carefully washed down the steps and handrails leading from Colma Bart Station to Mike Nevin Way.

Their work improved the appearance of this place and removed the dirt and trash that had accumulated there. The difference this effort has made is quite apparent: this area now looks brand new!

We thank the Ministry of Public Works for their work and for helping to improve the appearance of this high traffic area!

Please do your part to help us keep our community clean! If you wish to report issues (such as illegal dumping, graffiti or abandoned vehicles), please visit our website to direct your request to the appropriate agency.
