Redwood City, CA - June 8, 2009 - The Redwood City Planning Commission invites the community to join a New General Plan Study Session to discuss drafts of three crucial Elements of the draft New General Plan. The three elements are: Historic Resources, Infrastructure, and Economic Development. The meeting will take place on:
Tuesday, June 16th, 2009
Council Chambers in City Hall
1017 Middlefield Road
The three draft elements to be discussed are online at www.redwoodcity.org/generalplan.
This is the second of at least five special study sessions to be held throughout the summer on different topics (to be announced) of the draft New General Plan. Upcoming study sessions are scheduled for June 23rd, July 7th, and July 21st, and other meetings will be scheduled for August.
A great deal of community input on these topics has been previously gathered, and now it’s time to present the resulting draft elements for a full public discussion and review. City staff is also seeking comments on these topics through a special comments page on the City website, at www.redwoodcity.org/gp-comments. Information on the New General Plan is online at www.redwoodcity.org/generalplan.
This entire study session and comment process will result in further revisions and edits to these draft sections of the New General Plan, which will be presented later to the Planning Commission and City Council for final approval.
The General Plan is the document that establishes policies, goals, and programs for the long-term physical development of our community, and for what we want our City to be for future generations. The community is a crucial part of shaping that future, and this series of study sessions is another opportunity to help create the plan that will guide our community’s progress for years to come.
