City of Redwood City Competes in Contest to Win “Best City Hall”

Vote by Feb. 10 to Get Us to the Next Round,and in the Coming Weeks to Help Us Make it to the Top

The City of Redwood City recently entered a competition where communities can vote and choose the nation’s Best City Hall. Redwood City’s City Hall, renowned for its modern yet welcoming architecture and lush flowering trees and colorful blossoms during spring and summer, was nominated and has already made it to the second round. With the community’s support, Redwood City just might win!

The City Hall Madness contest  is organized by ELGL, an organization dedicated to “innovative local government leaders with a passion for connecting, communicating and educating.” This past December, ELGL issued a call for nominations for the Best City Hall in terms of design. After Redwood City’s nomination, the ELGL Tournament Committee selected a semi-finalist field of 64. Last week, ELGL members, friends and community members took part and voted in ELGL City Hall Madness, narrowing the field to 32, which still includes Redwood City. Many first round matches came down to the wire, complete with the suspense and frenzy you would expect a tournament like this to deliver.  In the weeks ahead, the community is invited to show their civic provide and continue voting for Redwood City in this fierce competition.

Tournament Dates

  • Week of Feb. 6: Round of 32
  • Week of Feb. 13: Sweet 16
  • Week of Feb. 20: Elite 8
  • Week of Feb. 27: Final 4

Residents, visitors and business owners can vote in the head-to-head match-ups to determine which city hall advances to the next round. They can win bonus points for our City Hall by leaving a comment on what makes it so great, making sure to note that the comment is about Redwood City. Voting ends at midnight EST on Feb. 10. We encourage our community to spread the word to their neighbors, family, and friends and online using #ELGLCityHall
