August 28, 2019
The City hosted a community meeting on August 28, 2019 at the American Legion Hall in downtown San Bruno. There were approximately 40 residents, business owners, and interested parties in attendance, including several members of the San Bruno City Council and a County Supervisor. Attendees were provided information about three options the project team had been evaluating. The meeting consisted of a presentation, a question and answer period, and a breakout session during which attendees could visit various informational stations staffed by members of the project team. Attendees were given the opportunity to provide feedback to the project team verbally during the question and answer period, and by participating in a survey in which they could indicate their preference for one of the three project options which were:
- Do not build a grade separation at Scott Street.
- Build a grade separation at Scott Street that accommodates pedestrians and bicycles. The crossing will be closed to motor vehicles.
- Build a grade separation at Scott Street that accommodates pedestrians, bicycles, and motor vehicles. To build this option, the City would have to displace an unknown number of residents and businesses from properties near the crossing.

On November 26, 2019, the San Bruno City Council eliminated Options A and C and selected option B, to close the Scott Street crossing to motor vehicles and build a grade separation that accommodates pedestrians and bicycles.
On June 22, 2020 and June 24, 2020, Caltrain and the Cities of San Bruno and South San Francisco hosted a virtual community meeting on Zoom to gather feedback on the community's preferences for the railroad track modifications, and the pedestrian and bicycle crossing at Scott Street and grade separation at South Linden Avenue.

On August 25, 2020 the San Bruno City Council provided direction to proceed with the alternative for the railroad track to be partially raised by 2.5 feet and received community feedback on the pedestrian and bicycle crossing.
October to November 2020 - Virtual Open House
As part of the City's effort to provide additional visual tools and information on the pedestrian and bicycle crossing options and solicit feedback, a Virtual Open House was developed and a survey was available between October 15 and November 4, 2020 to collect community input. Interactive 3D models and views, conceptual renderings, photo simulations, maps and a survey for the community to provide their input are available. Access the Virtual Open House online.
