The Belmont -Redwood Shores School District is discussing changing the boundaries in Belmont. Belmont has 4 elementary schools and Redwood Shores has 2. All students attend Ralston Middle School. This district also services part of San Mateo and San Carlos. Buyers who are thinking of purchasing in any of our Peninsula cities must get all the current information from the respective school district. For expample the Burlingame School District decided in March of 2011 to open up the old Hoover site as a K-5 neighborhood school by August 2014. This will effect many homes in the area. Currently there are 5 elementary schools and 1 middle school. For up-dates on the boundary line decision-making progress, please visit the Burlingame District’s website www.bsd.k12.ca.us  or Belmont-Redwood Shores District  www.brssd.org

Story poles have been set up at the Burlingame Train Station to show residents the height of the elevated train tracks planed for the High Speed Rail system. The orange mesh gives a good visual how the tracks clearly will divide our town. The 59 feet high cables indicate where the electric cables will run. The story poles will remain in the parking lot at the intersection of California Drive and Burlingame Avenue until Thursday, October 21. Take a look and you will understand why Burlingame residents are upset.

Running Shoe Store Opens In Burlingame

Finally, we have a local running shoe store again in Burlingame. A Runner’s Mind opened this summer at 1199 Howard Ave right across from Powell’s Sweet Shoppe, Burlingame’s favorite candy shop. The store is owned by the Keleher Family, who are local running and walking enthusiasts. Get the BHS running schedule and more from their blog site: www.arunnersmindbeyondthefit.blogspot.com. Once you are fitted with your new shoes, try some of the amazing Burlingame walking and running routes posted at www.mapmyrun.com. I personally don’t care for the hills but love long flat routes. One of my favorite is the trail along the Bay. If you have some time, start at the Marriott Hotel and end at the Burlingame dog park which is a 9 mile walk/run /round trip.

The city of Burlingame will be directly affected by the High Speed Rail plans. The project which was approved by voters in 2008,  will have significant impacts on Peninsula communities. The High Speed Rail service construction is scheduled to begin in 2010 and will connect San Francisco and Los Angeles. Tracks will run along the Peninsula Corridor. Burlingame residents love their train station which was built at the end of the nineteenth century and recently received a face lift. How will our station look with an elevated track behind it?The city of Burlingame has asked for an underground solution. But less expensive plans call for an elevated track and sound walls. Burlingame residents are concerned. The High Speed Rail tracks will affect the value of Burlingame Real Estate in general, not just Burlingame neighborhoods close to the tracks.
Next Public High Speed Rail Meeting 5/12/2010 @ 6PM, Burlingame Recreation Center, 850 Burlingame Ave

There used to be a 4 bedroom/2bath home here with 1850sqft of living space that was built in the twenties. It was sold in July 2009 for lot value of $ 995,000. Located at 1441 Balboa Ave in Burlingame  this is just one example of how our neighborhoods are changing. Other construction sites that I have noticed just walking around the Easton Addition in Burlingame are located on these streets: 1100 block of Cortez Ave, 1400 block of Benito Ave, 1300 block of Columbus Ave…..I am sure there are more. If these are spec homes, they will be offered anywhere from $ 2,2 to $2.7 million in the very near future.
