Downtown Precise Plan Draft EIR Available November 7th; Public Hearings Scheduled
Redwood City, CA - November 6 , 2006 -
The City is happy to announce major milestones in the development of the Draft Downtown Precise Plan (Plan).
First, the Plan’s Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) will be available for public review and comment, beginning on Tuesday, November 7th, 2006. This will mark the start of a 45-day public review period (closing December 22nd), during which the community is encouraged to provide comment on any aspect of the Draft Plan and Draft EIR. The DEIR will be available online soon, and at City libraries, and at City Hall.
Secondly, two Planning Commission public hearings on this issue have been scheduled, and the community is invited and encouraged to attend and participate in the process of further defining and developing the DEIR and the Draft Plan. The public hearings are scheduled for:
- Tuesday, November 14, 2006 – 7:00 pm
- Tuesday, December 12, 2006 – 7:00 pm
Both public hearings take place at City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road in Redwood City.
This is all part of the ongoing City and community process to create a blueprint for the future of what Redwood City’s Downtown will be – that blueprint is the Downtown Precise Plan, which will set the course for creating and maintaining an exciting, active, and livable downtown community. It outlines our Downtown’s future housing, building design, landscaping, architectural styles, open space, and all other aspects of a prospective development.
As part of the development of the Plan, the Draft EIR has been prepared, to identify and address any potentially significant environmental impacts that may be associated with future implementation of the Draft Plan. The Draft Downtown Precise Plan has been under development for several years, with numerous workshops, public hearings, and community meetings.

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.
