Redwood City Planning Commission Considering Recommendation to Council on Downtown Precise Plan and EIR
Redwood City, CA - December 8, 2010 -
Redwood City’s new Draft Downtown Precise Plan is a blueprintfor what our Downtown will be: how we can continue creating an exciting, active, and livable Downtown with interesting building forms and attractive, inviting spaces. Now, with a great deal of community discussion, input, and formal comment, the Draft Downtown Precise Plan and its draft Final Environmental Impact Report are complete, and the Planning Commission is ready to consider a final recommendation to the City Council.
The Planning Commission will hold a Public Hearing on Tuesday, December 14, 2010, at City Hall (1017 Middlefield Road) beginning at 7 pm, to consider two recommendations to the City Council: 1) to certify the draft Final Environmental Impact Report, and, 2) to approve the Downtown Precise Plan. The Planning Commission’s recommendations are expected to come before the City Council in early 2011.
Many members of the Redwood City community have been involved with the development of Redwood City's Downtown Precise Plan. Just this fall, the Plan’s Draft EIR went through a 45-day public circulation period (from September 21, 2010 thru November 5, 2010), and the Planning Commission held public hearings on September 21 and October 26, 2010 to receive comments on the Draft EIR and Downtown Precise Plan.
Interested members of the community are invited to participate in this near-final step in the Downtown Precise Plan process, and join the discussion as the Planning Commission considers its recommendations. More information about the Downtown Precise Plan is online at www.redwoodcity.org/preciseplan.
