For Immediate Release
Third Public Workshop Scheduled for Design of Downtown Courthouse Square
Redwood City, CA - February 13, 2004
- Residents of Redwood City and other interested people are invited to help bring back a piece of history – a time when every downtown had a central gathering place, a plaza, or a town square; a comfortable place for people to gather, meet, and be part of a real community. Redwood City announces the third in a series of public workshops on the Courthouse Square design, and encourages the community to participate in reviewing the recommended design concept and to comment on the refined concept plan from the previous two public workshops.
The third workshop is scheduled for Thursday, March 4, 2004 from 7 to10 pm in the Redwood Room at Veterans Memorial Senior Center, located at 1455 Madison Avenue in Redwood City. This is another opportunity for the community to help shape the future plaza in the heart of our Downtown.
The City’s is planning to remove the ‘annex’ building and restore the façade of the old Courthouse on Broadway, across from the Fox Theater. With the annex gone, the opportunity will exist to create a great public space for the community, which will bring pedestrians and new life and vitality to the Downtown area. It’s part of the renaissance of our Downtown that is coming together, and part of building a great community together.
