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.
