Sisters of Mercy Campus

Representatives of the Sisters of Mercy have been engaging in preliminary planning towards master plans for the Sisters of Mercy and Mercy High School properties. The stated purpose is to ensure the continuation of the sisters’ mission and legacy, to provide for the current and long-term care of the sisters, to honor the natural environment of the campus, and to continue to be a resource in the neighborhood. 

To date, all planning has been preliminary, and no applications have been submitted to the City of Burlingame. Any modifications to the existing use permit or the uses on the site are subject to public hearings by the City of Burlingame Planning Commission.

Extensive outreach is being carried out by Sisters of Mercy representatives through an interactive website (see below), virtual and individual group Chats and Zoom Community Meetings, and regular mail.  In addition, neighborhood outreach materials have been sent which invite the community to provide input and comments related to any future use of the Mercy Campus.

 The Mercy planning group welcomes feedback from the public and has provided several options by which this can be done. Please see their website for more information: https://courbanize.com/projects/mercy-campus/information . The community will be kept up to date via this website, which notifies Subscribers when any new information is posted.

Please also check this preliminary project page for future updates; however, the City of Burlingame currently has no active application or plans on file for the Mercy Campus.
