Project Update 11/4/11:
Redwood City was informed on November 4, that DMB Associates intends to engage in a continuing internal review and evaluation of their submitted proposal, in light of the volume of comments and feedback received during the initial scoping process. As more information and any revisions to the proposal are made available by the applicant, the City will carry on its analysis of the application. Following the applicant’s continuing review and evaluation, the City anticipates a second scoping period, including a revised Notice of Preparation and related project description.
Redwood City’s Planning Department has undertaken the environmental review process for the proposed Saltworks project on the Cargill property located east of Highway 101 and immediately south of Seaport Boulevard. A project application submitted by DMB Associates outlines development plans for the 1,436-acre property.
The City Council determined that it is in the public's interest to review the development proposal. Accepting and analyzing a development proposal does not constitute an approval or denial of a project.
According to the application, the proposed Saltworks project would develop approximately half of the property with housing, retail and commercial uses, with half dedicated for wetlands, parks, a sports field complex, multi-use open space and waterways.
City’s leaders recognize the importance of this property and the tremendous interest in it and will keep residents informed throughout the review of this development proposal.
The environmental review process is the beginning of what could be a multi-year process of public engagement and environmental review to shape the plan and its alternatives, and prepare for the decision-making process. As the process unfolds, the City will provide detailed information about the proposed Saltworks project. These Web pages will help you learn how the City analyzes the proposed development and how you can stay informed and involved in the planning and review process.
