Community Invited to Bring Opinions, Ideas, & Comments to Workshop – “What Are Redwood City’s Priorities?”

Redwood City, CA - January 14, 2008 – Each year the City Council of Redwood City reviews and revises a set of two-year priorities. These priorities provide the City’s overall direction, and help guide the development of the budget, which in turn leads to the programs, projects, policies, and processes for the City. The Council priorities are crucial in developing work programs for the various City departments, in order to best meet the needs of the people who live and work in our community – and therefore it is very important that the community be involved and engaged in the development of these priorities.

The City invites the public to participate in a Community Input Workshop on City Council Priorities. Two identical workshops are scheduled (the first one took place on January 23), and interested members of the community are encouraged to attend this final workshop:


    Thursday, January 31st, 6 – 8:30 pm

The workshop will be held at the Veterans Memorial Senior Center , 1455 Madison Avenue. Please RSVP to 780-7300.

Dinner will be provided, followed by an overview of the priority-setting process, and a facilitated discussion designed to gain participants’ ideas, opinions, and suggestions, and incorporate community and neighborhood values regarding City Council priorities. This is not a City Council meeting; rather, it is a great opportunity for the community to work together to develop their own concepts of what the Council’s priorities should be. The results of this workshop will be provided to the City Council to utilize during their deliberations on priorities, to take place at their public meeting on February 25th.

The current set of City Council Priorities can be seen on the City’s website.

Community members are invited and strongly encouraged to attend and participate in this important process. RSVPs to 780-7300 are required so that the appropriate number of dinners can be provided.
