Hoover Area Study: Linking Your Neighborhood

The Redevelopment Agency of Redwood City has completed a neighborhood mobility study called “Hoover Area Connection: Linking for Your Neighborhood.” This study enabled residents in the Hoover area (portions of Stambaugh-Heller and Redwood Village neighborhoods) to determine the solutions needed to improve their ability to walk and bicycle safely and easily to school, work, shopping, and services.

In 2008, a number of community and stakeholder meetings were held, both in English and Spanish within the Study Area to engage residents and community members in the development of strategies to improve the safety and ease of walking, bicycling and taking public transit.

Redwood City received a $153,000 Environmental Justice Planning Grant from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and $17,000 in-kind and cash funding from the Redwood City Redevelopment Agency for this study to help improve pedestrian and bicycle mobility and safety.
