Redwood City Schedules Community Workshop on Making Stambaugh-Heller and Redwood Village Areas More Pedestrian & Bicycle-Friendly

Redwood City, CA -  January 3, 2008 - The City of Redwood City invites the community to share suggestions, ideas, and advice on how to improve pedestrian and bicyclist access and safety in the Stambaugh-Heller and Redwood Village neighborhoods. The specific area of focus is generally bordered by Spring Street, Chestnut Street, Chew Street, and Douglas Avenue. With two major roadways in the vicinity - Woodside Road and Middlefield Road - it’s important to examine the access issues and develop a program to ensure maximum safety for pedestrians and bicyclists.

This is the first in a series of community workshops to be held in both English and Spanish. Each workshop will offer discussions around determining the improvements that may need to be made to ensure access and safety of pedestrians and bicyclists traveling to work, school, shopping, and services. The first workshop is scheduled for:

  • Wednesday, January 16th, 2008
    6:30 to 8:30 pm
    Hoover Elementary School
    701 Charter Street in Redwood City

Free child care for children ages three to nine is available during this meeting (please call 780-7229 to reserve child care). Snacks and beverages will be served.

In addition to a general exchange of ideas, this innovative, engaging workshop will include a hands-on activity for participants to learn how the design of an area – including lighting, landscaping, types of buildings, and sidewalks - can enhance public safety, reduce crime, and provide for more suitable and inviting access for pedestrians and bicyclists. Redwood City received a grant from Caltrans and funding from the Redwood City Redevelopment Agency for this project to help improve pedestrian and bicycle mobility and safety.
