Invocation / Thought For The Day: President Carr shared some thoughts about Public Service from Nelson Madela, "What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived it is the difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead."  
Mahatma Gandi said, "Man becomes great exactly in the degree in which he works for the welfare of his fellow men."  
Woodrow Wilson inspired us with the words..."
"You are not here merely to make a living. You are here to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, and with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world. You impoverish yourself if you forget this errand."

Broadway Grade Separation: #1 worst grade crossing in California, and the cost is prohibitive. Burlingame is working with CalTrain and Transportation Authority to fix it.
The Village at Burlingame's Lot F & N: Lot F on the Southside of Howard Avenue will have 132 affordable living units, 74 units for service personnel and 54 senior living units.

TopGolf is coming to Burlingame: The fancy driving range/Bar/Restaurant/Games center will come to Burlingame and will include meeting rooms. Fun for all.

Burlingame Point: Facebook's Oculus has arrived and will occupy 767,000 square feet of office space as of summer 2020. The increase in traffic will be offset by carpooling, buses, shuttles from Millbrae BART station. San Mateo is working on possible southbound lanes for Peninsula Avenue...very controversial.
