Redwood Shores Lagoon Bank Policy
and Construction Guidelines

The City of Redwood City has developed a policy to address the issue of new construction (including maintenance/repair of existing improvements) which may affect the stability of the slopes on the interior waterways in Redwood Shores.

The policy seeks to provide clear guidelines for shoreline improvements so that the combined effect of continued modifications to the shoreline are controlled. Without guidelines, continued construction has the potential to create severe adverse impacts on the lagoon bank, water quality, health and safety, and the aesthetic quality of the surrounding community.

On Monday, July 24, 2006 the City Council adopted the Redwood Shores Lagoon Bank Policy and Construction Guidelines as it applies to new construction and/or the maintenance and repair of existing permitted construction. Visit the link below for information on the approved policy.

City Staff is still undergoing discussion and site analysis with respect to the existing nonconforming construction on waterfront properties within Redwood Shores. This item will return to the City Council at a later date for further consideration. Notices for the public hearing will be sent to interest parties at least 10 days prior to the hearing date. Questions on this issue, and comments on the proposed policy, may be emailed to You may also contact the City’s Planning, Housing & Economic Development Department at 780-7234.
