Reach Codes Community Survey

The City of San Bruno seeks community feedback to evaluate how the proposed Reach Codes may impact residents, businesses, and developers prior to adopting an ordinance. Stakeholder input on the proposed amendments will provide further guidance toward adopting Reach Codes. City staff will incorporate community feedback on the Reach Codes as it develops its recommendation to the City Council, tentatively scheduled for September 2022. The survey should take approximately 5 minutes to complete, and your responses will remain anonymous.
