Community Invited to Discuss the Future of Downtown Redwood City - Draft Downtown Precise Plan Now Available

Redwood City, CA - September 18 , 2006 - Redwood City’s Downtown renaissance is continuing, with new buildings, new businesses, new community gathering places, and more! This renaissance includes creating a blueprint for the long-term view of what our Downtown will be. Together, members of the community, Planning Commission and City Council are creating that blueprint - the Downtown Precise Plan - which outlines our Downtown’s future urban design, land uses, housing, architectural styles and other developmental aspects. Interested members of the community are invited to join others at several upcoming Planning Commission workshops for a vibrant and interesting discussion on the Downtown Precise Plan.

The first workshop is on Tuesday, October 3rd, 2006 starting at 7 pm and taking place in the Council chambers at City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road. This is a great opportunity to review, learn about, and discuss the Draft Downtown Precise Plan, share ideas and opinions with other community members and City staff, and help the City to move to the next steps in producing this important blueprint for the future. Following the introductory workshop, there will be several other public meetings to provide ample opportunity for community members to participate and express their views – those take place on October 10th and November 14th.

The Draft Downtown Precise Plan is available online, and at City Hall and all Redwood City libraries.

To make it as easy as possible for parents to attend these workshops, the City will provide free childcare at these meetings for children ages 3-9 (anyone desiring child care must call 780-7234 for a reservation).

More information on the Downtown Precise Plan is available by calling (650) 780-7234, sending an email to, or visiting

Members of the community are encouraged to attend one or more of these workshops, and participate in creating the blueprint for what our Downtown will be in the future. Everyone’s ideas, thoughts, opinions, suggestions, and impressions are important in this process!

Redwood City is committed to partnering with the community to ensure a purposeful public involvement in creating the Downtown Precise Plan, and to continue to engage and involve the community at every point in the process.
