Community Invited to Discuss, Comment on Draft Elements, Chapters of the New General Plan
Redwood City, CA - May 29, 2009 - The Redwood City Planning Commission has scheduled several Study Sessions this summer to discuss and hear from the community about draft Elements, Chapters, and Sections of the New General Plan.
The first Study Session will include the draft Introduction, draft Natural Resources Chapter, and draft Public Safety chapter. The community is invited and encouraged to attend this and other upcoming General Plan study sessions:
- Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009
Council Chambers in City Hall
1017 Middlefield Road
Other study sessions on different topics (to be announced) are scheduled for June 16th, June 23rd, July 7th, and July 2st. Topics to be discussed at these summer study sessions include: economic development, historic resources, infrastructure, land use/urban form, circulation, quality of life, housing, and more.
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.
