About this Event

At this resource fair, you can:

  • Learn about Bright in Your Backyard, Hello Housing’s One Stop Shop to help homeowners navigate the process of building their second unit with FREE project management support throughout the process.
  • Tour a Prefab second unit on-site!
  • Get a FREE how-to workbook on second units (while supplies last)
  • Arrive and leave anytime during the event- you don't have to stay the whole time.
  • Meet city planners from Redwood City, Pacifica, and unincorporated San Mateo County.

Whether you are just starting to think about whether building a second unit is a good fit for you or if you are already putting together your project team, you won’t want to miss this unprecedented event!

Special Second Unit Presentations

Top second unit experts will be giving optional presentations on popular topics for those who want a more in-depth overview. The preliminary presentation schedule includes:

2:00-2:20: Event Welcome

2:40-3:10: What can I build? Zoning terms and requirements explained.

3:30-4:00: How can I build? Finding your construction team.

4:10-4:30: How do I pay for it? Funding your second unit project.

Admission to all presentations is included for free with your RSVP to the main fair. Seating for presentations is on a first come, first served basis. All presentations are in the same building as the vendor tables. Tabling will continue in parallel with the presentations.

Important Notes:

  • Please reserve one ticket per person attending (so a married couple attending together would reserve two free tickets).
  • We are asking registered guests to take a short survey to help the hosts fine-tune the presentations and resources at this fair to better provide what the audience is looking for. This information will also help the County of San Mateo further improve second unit programs and financing options.

  • Please note the County of San Mateo and City of Redwood City provide this fair as an informational resource, and this event does not constitute or imply the endorsement, recommendation, or favoring of any participating vendor.
