Redwood City Schedules Community Workshops to Discuss Stanford University Proposal and Hear Neighbors’ Ideas, Thoughts, Concerns

Redwood City, CA - November 14, 2008 - Redwood City invites the community to attend one of three neighborhood workshops to talk about the “Stanford in Redwood City” project proposal. Stanford University proposes to build a new 1.5 million square foot office project on the land between Highway 101, Bay Road, 2nd Avenue, and Douglas Avenue in Redwood City.

There are three neighborhood workshops scheduled, each with the same agenda. Two of these will be bilingual.

  • Thursday, November 20, 6:30 - 8:30 PM
    Friendly Acres Neighborhood Association Meeting
    Redwood City PAL Building, 3399 Bay Road

  • Wednesday, December 3, 6:30 - 8:30 PM
    Summit Preparatory School, 890 Broadway
    English to Spanish translation will be available.

  • Friday, January 9, 8:35 - 9:25 AM
    Hoover School, 701 Charter Street
    This workshop is intended for Spanish speakers, with English translation available.

At each of these workshops, a project overview will be presented, followed by small group discussions around various elements of the project. Questions and concerns about the project and the City’s development review process will be discussed and answered by Redwood City staff and Stanford’s project manager. This is an important opportunity for the neighbors near the project site to learn more and to share their thoughts on this proposal.

Stanford University proposes to redevelop a 35-acre portion of the former Mid-Point Technology Park campus. The proposal calls for demolition of existing buildings and construction of approximately 1.5 million square feet of building space for administrative office uses and, to a lesser extent, research and development uses, and medical clinic uses, in up to 13 buildings supported by five parking structures for approximately 5,100 parking spaces. The project also proposes an onsite storm water retention system and a pedestrian greenway that would run through the center of the project area. More information is available online.
