Fairmont Drive Transfer of Territory, Measure R (May 2012)
The approval of Measure R means that 47 residences located between 2020 and 2098 (even numbers) and 2025 and 2089 (odd numbers) on Fairmont Drive in San Mateo will be transferred from the Belmont-Redwood Shores Elementary School and Sequoia Union High School Districts to the San Mateo/Foster City Elementary School and San Mateo Union High School Districts. The impacted school districts did not unanimously agree on this transfer and as a result, an election was called to settle the matter.
The transfer took place effective July 1, 2013. Property owners of the 47 residences will see an increase in their taxes if Measure R is approved, because the districts into which they will be transferred have higher parcel taxes in place than the districts from which they would be transferred.
The election was held as a mail-in ballot election.
