City Invites Community to Final Workshop on Long-Term Water Supply Issues
Redwood City, CA - November 15 , 2005 - The City of Redwood City is updating its Urban Water Management (UWM) Plan – the document which outlines the core policies for long-term management of the conservation and efficient use of our water supply. Two public workshops were held in September to gather and incorporate public comment, ideas, opinions, suggestions, and neighborhood values into the process of updating this crucial document.
A final public comment workshop has been scheduled, and the community is encouraged to attend and participate:
Wednesday, November 30 ~ 7:30 pm
Veterans Memorial Senior Center
1455 Madison Avenue, Redwood City
At this workshop, participants will be brought up to speed on the work done so far, hear about the next steps, and then engage in discussion on the Draft UWM Plan. The City needs comments, questions, and opinions, and wants to hear what people like or dislike about the draft, if it adequately addresses long term water supply concerns, and whether the community feels it is good public policy.
The Draft Plan will be available online as of November 19th, 2005 on the City’s website. Copies of the draft plan will also be available at City Hall (1017 Middlefield), the Downtown Library (1044 Middlefield), and at Public Works Services (1400 Broadway).
More information on the UWM Plan process and the workshop is available online. Refreshments will be served at the workshop.
Following the November 30th meeting, City staff will incorporate any new information gained, and bring the draft Plan to the City Council for a public hearing and consideration. The plan must be finalized by December 30th. For more information on this or other public works projects, please call 780-7464.
