Community Invited to City Council Priorities Workshop
Redwood City, CA - January 5, 2006 - Each year the City Council reviews and revises a set of two-year priorities. These priorities help provide the City’s overall direction, and contain specific programs, projects, policies, and processes that are used in developing work programs for the various City departments. As part of this year’s review and revision process, the City is inviting the public to participate in a Community Input Workshop on City Council Priorities.
Two identical workshops are scheduled, and interested members of the community are encouraged to attend one of them:
- Wednesday, January 18, 6 – 8:30 pm
Community Activities Building
1400 Roosevelt Avenue, Redwood City
- Thursday, January 19, 6 – 8:30 pm
Veterans Memorial Senior Center
1455 Madison Avenue, Redwood City
Dinner will be provided at each of these workshops, followed by an overview of the priority-setting process, and a facilitated discussion designed to gain participants’ ideas, opinions, and suggestions, and incorporate community and neighborhood values regarding City Council priorities.
This is not a City Council meeting; rather, it is a great opportunity for the community to work together to develop their own concepts of what the Council’s priorities should be. The results of this workshop will be provided to the City Council for them to utilize during their deliberations on priorities, to take place at a public meeting on February 6th.
