Yes, you read that correctly. Over the past two years San Mateo County has been trying to identify a site to build a new jail to help with overcrowding. After an exhaustive study, the County came up with a list of the top 7 most likely sites in San Mateo County. Two of those sites fall in San Carlos. Falling at #4, is 345 Shoreway. Coming in at #7, is 767 Industrial. As you can imagine, the communities surrounding those potential sites are not exactly welcoming the possibility of a jail with open arms. To help better inform the community and answer any questions that residents may have, the County has set up a community meeting from 7:00-9:00 pm at the San Carlos Library on July 22, 2009.
