About the General Plan
Adopted on October 11, 2010, the General Plan is the blueprint for what Redwood City will be, a visioning document that guides the growth and development of Redwood City through 2030. As a culmination of extensive community outreach and input, the General Plan establishes the basis for zoning regulations and provides guidance in the evaluation of development proposals. In addition, it creates the framework for economic development, transportation improvements, and balancing residents' desires with regard to sustainability, City services, parks, and cultural and historic preservation. The General Plan guides:
- What the City will look and feel like.
- Where and how we live.
- How we will get around.
- What we do for enlightenment, entertainment, and fun.
- How we will live with and preserve natural resources.
- Ways we will improve our quality of life.
