City and Neighbors to Celebrate Completion of "New" Roosevelt Avenue

Redwood City, CA - January 20, 2003 - After over two years of work, the reconstruction of Roosevelt Avenue between Hudson Street and Valota Road is complete, and the neighborhood and community are invited to join the celebration!

To commemorate the completion of the new streetscape, Redwood City and the Roosevelt and Palm Park Neighborhood Associations are proud to co-host a special Tree Planting and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony this Saturday, January 24, 2004.

The special Roosevelt Avenue tree planting is an opportunity for volunteers to help put in the final touch that will complete the project. It begins at 8:00 am, and volunteers who are willing to get their hands dirty should meet at the Community Activities Building, 1400 Roosevelt Avenue. Those people participating in the tree planting should bring their shovel, gloves, and brooms. The City is providing 24-inch box sized Sycamore and Ash trees to be planted in designated locations within the new planting strips on Roosevelt.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony featuring Redwood City Mayor Jeff Ira is at noon at Hawes School, 909 Roosevelt Avenue. The ribbon-cutting will be followed by hot dogs, chips, and soda for everyone! This event is a great opportunity to meet neighbors, share the pride of Roosevelt Avenue, and help to build a great community in this neighborhood.

Roosevelt Avenue has been completely rebuilt with new sewer, water, and storm drain systems, as well as new curbs, gutters, sidewalks, and road surfaces. Many of the overhead utility lines have been placed underground, greatly improving the aesthetic appearance of Roosevelt Avenue for the residents, and providing a significant upgrade to the utility systems and the roadway.
