Another Opportunity to Review, Discuss, Comment on New General Plan

Redwood City, CA - October 1, 2008 - In late September, hundreds of people visited Courthouse Square and the County History Museum to view displays, join in discussions, hear presentations, offer comments and opinions, and take part in helping to create the blueprint for our community’s future – the City’s new General Plan.

For those who were unable to attend, here is another opportunity to learn about and offer your views on what the new General Plan should include. The community is again invited to Be a Part of the Plan at the Planning Commission meeting on Tuesday, October 7, 2008 in the Council Chambers at City Hall (1017 Middlefield Road). The evening starts at 6:30 with an “open house” where visitors can browse the displays, talk to staff about the elements of the new General Plan, and enjoy light refreshments. Then at 7 pm, the meeting gets underway.

All of the displays from the recent public workshop will be on-site, and each will be presented and discussed at this joint meeting of the Planning Commission and the Housing and Human Concerns Committee. There will be ample opportunity to learn from the presentations, view the displays, talk to staff, and offer comments, opinions, ideas, and preferences. The City wants to get as many perspectives as possible about alternative land uses around El Camino Real, the Bayfront, Woodside Road, and neighborhood areas – as well as on many other General Plan issues, like mobility, sustainability, economic development, and more.

The General Plan is the document that establishes policies, goals, and programs for the long-term physical development of our community. It’s really a “blueprint for the future” of how our City will look, how development will occur, and what we want our City to be for future generations. More information is available by contacting Redwood City’s New General Plan staff by calling 650-780-7234, visiting, or emailing
