City Invites Community to Workshops on Long Term Water Supply Issues
Redwood City, CA - August 31 , 2005 - The City of Redwood City is beginning the process of updating its Urban Water Management (UWM) Plan – the document which outlines the core policies for long-term management of the conservation and efficient use of our water supply. Two public workshops have been scheduled to bring the community’s ideas, opinions, suggestions, and community and neighborhood values into the process of updating this crucial document.
Wednesday, September 21, 6 to 9 pm
Veterans Memorial Senior Center
1455 Madison Avenue
Saturday, September 24, 9 am to noon
Community Activities Building
1400 Roosevelt Avenue
At each workshop, following a brief background and overview presentation, discussions will be facilitated on at least three overarching elements of our UWM Plan:
- Water Supply and Projected Demand – conservation, recycled water, and financing
- Water Supply and Potential New Development – projected future connections and impacts on the water supply
- Water Supply Reliability – contingency plans and drought measures
“Our goal is to bring the community’s values and input into this Plan” said Redwood City Mayor Jeff Ira. “Our homes, businesses, hospitals, parks, schools, and industry depend on a high-quality, reliable water supply, and to provide this we must set the stage for how we will manage our water supply in the future. This updated Plan will flow into our General Plan and help guide the Council and staff in how we manage this critical resource.”
Please RSVP for either of these workshops to 780-7464. More information on the UWM Plan and the workshops is available online. Both meetings will cover the same information – two are offered to ensure a full opportunity for interested people to attend one or the other. Refreshments will be served.
