Welcome to the Borel Neighborhood!

The Borel Neighborhood Association works to foster a sense of community and enhance the quality of life for all individuals within our neighborhood. We hold quarterly meetings and socials throughout the year. We focus on San Mateo citywide issues that impact Borel Neighborhood such as the Community Flood and Storm Protection Ballot Measure, proposed historic district, and building electrification.

Our priorities include:
Neighborhood Safety, including helping reduce crime by participating in the Neighborhood Watch Program and all that includes (e.g., signage, promoting home camera registration with the San Mateo Police Department).
Safe Streets, through advocating for street design and use that is safe for pedestrians, bicyclists, and other micro-mobility, and also speed adherence and enforcement.
Building development that benefits the community, including reducing environmental impact. We support transformation of aging commercial and office space into inclusive neighborhood assets.

  • The new bollards are very reflective. This will be useful when the days get shorter and school events are in the dark hours.
  • New bollards at the intersections near Borel Middle School! This is a big step to improve pedestrian safety on Barneson. Thank you City of San Mateo!
