Join North Fair Oaks neighbors, small business owners, and community leaders in urging Facebook to prioritize a full-service transit station at Middlefield Road.
Facebook is funding a transit line from Redwood City to the East Bay along the Dumbarton Rail in a partnership called “Cross-Bay Transit Partners”.
North Fair Oaks, a historically underserved majority-minority community, is being skipped over as a potential transit station location serving the heart of the neighborhood. More than your average Peninsula suburb, Middlefield Junction in North Fair Oaks would be an ideal transit station due to being walking distance to the existing County Health Center, Library, Community Center, thousands of planned housing units and +1,000,000 square feet of new office space at the Stanford Redwood City campus.
Redwood Junction site also provides the possibility of connecting projects like Broadway Streetcar project to a larger multi-modal transit hub.
Middlefield Road has undergone a 10 year planning phase to pass the North Fair Oaks Community Plan that re-zoned the area surrounding Redwood Junction to incorporate higher density residential next to a multi-modal transit hub. Using this plan, San Mateo County is building a 100-plus affordable housing unit behind the County Health Center at Redwood Junction that would benefit greatly from being in proximity to a multi-modal transit hub.
