Second Public Hearing on Downtown Precise Plan Draft EIR – December 12
Redwood City, CA - December 1 , 2006 -
The second public hearing on Redwood City’s Downtown Precise Plan Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) is scheduled for Tuesday, December 12, starting at 7 pm at City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road, hosted by the Redwood City Planning Commission. The DEIR is available online, at City libraries, and at City Hall.
The 45-day public review and comment period for the DEIR began on November 7th, and closes on December 22nd. During this time the community is encouraged to provide comment on any aspect of the Draft Downtown Precise Plan and its accompanying Draft EIR. Last month the Planning Commission held a public hearing on this issue as an opportunity for the community to participate in the process of further defining and developing the DEIR and the Draft Plan.
This is all part of the ongoing City and community process to create a blueprint for the future of what Redwood City’s Downtown will be – that blueprint is the Downtown Precise Plan, which will set the course for creating and maintaining an exciting, active, and livable downtown community. It outlines our Downtown’s future housing, building design, landscaping, architectural styles, open space, and all other aspects of a prospective development.
The Draft Downtown Precise Plan has been under development for several years, with numerous workshops, public hearings, and community meetings. As part of the development of the Plan, the Draft EIR has been prepared to identify and address any potentially significant environmental impacts that may be associated with future implementation of the Draft Plan. More information is available on the City’s web page dedicated to the Downtown Precise Plan at , or by calling 780-7234.
Redwood City is committed to partnering with the community to ensure a purposeful public involvement in creating the Downtown Precise Plan, and to continue to engage and involve the community at every point in the process.
