Downtown "Precise Plan" Workshop This Thursday - Get Involved in Planning the Future of Downtown Redwood City!
Redwood City, CA - May 23, 2004 - It's an exciting time for Downtown Redwood City, and the public is invited to be a part of that excitement by helping to create the Downtown Precise Plan. This is a planning document that will answer questions such as: What kind of architecture is right for our Downtown? How tall should our Downtown buildings be? What important features should be included in new Downtown development?
Redwood City residents, Downtown employees, business owners, and property owners, and anyone interested in participating in forming the future of Downtown should attend the Downtown Precise Plan Workshop this Thursday, May 27th beginning at 6 pm at Forester's Hall, 1204 Middlefield Road . Refreshments will be served.
This workshop promises to be engaging, interactive, and productive as the City works with the community to create the Downtown Precise Plan. It's a wonderful opportunity to get involved in answering the questions above, which will help to create the rules and regulations that will guide Downtown development over the next 10 years.
A precise plan outlines the urban design guidelines and principles for future development of a particular area of the City, in this case Downtown. Such a plan is specific to an identified area, and includes community input and planning commission review and recommendation before going to the City Council for consideration and approval. The end result serves as an overall blueprint for that specific area - a precise plan for how development will occur.
