Planning Commission to Unveil “Guiding Principles” for Update of General Plan at May 2 Meeting

Redwood City, CA - April 28 , 2006 - Last year, many residents of Redwood City participated in eight community workshops to discuss the City’s General Plan Update, helping to shape the future of our community. During those workshops, participants offered a great variety of ideas, opinions, thoughts, and comments about what is desired for the future of Redwood City.

The Redwood City Planning Commission has incorporated all of the community comments into the draft Guiding Principles for the General Plan. These Guiding Principles will in turn drive the vision and specific elements of the General Plan. The entire community is invited to join the Planning Commission for the unveiling of the Guiding Principles, and an illustration of how the community’s thoughts and comments were brought forward and connected to the Principles, as the Commission sets the stage for the next steps in the City’s General Plan Update.

This informative meeting takes place Tuesday May 2nd starting at 7 pm, in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road. During this meeting people will have a chance to comment on the Guiding Principles, and the Planning Commission will consider formal adoption of their content.

The next steps of the General Plan process include the development of the Vision for the General Plan, Planning Commission action on that Vision, and then expanding on that Vision with specific elements that directly correspond to the many important issues that the General Plan addresses. Once the Planning Commission has taken those steps, the entire General Plan Update and all of its elements will be presented to the City Council for its consideration.
