For Immediate Release

Two Community Information Meetings on High Speed Rail Scheduled for Redwood City

Update: Attend the May 11 HSR meeting!

Redwood City, CA - April 15, 2010 -  Following up last week’s release of the California High Speed Rail Authority’s Alternatives Analysis for the San Jose to San Francisco segment, two High Speed Rail community information meetings are scheduled in Redwood City, on April 29 and May 11.

The first meeting is being hosted by the California High Speed Rail Authority – Peninsula Rail Program (this is not a City-sponsored meeting; City staff will be in attendance to open the meeting and introduce the High Speed Rail staff):

  • Thursday, April 29, 2010 – 7 pm
    Veterans Memorial Senior Center
    1455 Madison Avenue, Redwood City

The purpose of the April 29 meeting is for the High Speed Rail (HSR) staff to present updated information to the community on the project’s schedule and process, to outline the existing physical conditions of the proposed segment through Redwood City, and to review the alternatives for how the project might be built in Redwood City. There will also be a question and answer panel, and plenty of displays depicting the alternatives.

The second community meeting will be hosted by Redwood City:

  • Tuesday, May 11, 2010 – 7 pm
    Veterans Memorial Senior Center
    1455 Madison Avenue, Redwood City

This meeting provides an opportunity for the community to have small group discussions about what they support or are concerned about in the HSR project, how those concerns might be addressed, and their preference and opinions about the alternatives presented by the HSR. From this second meeting City staff will compile the attendees’ comments, concerns, areas of support, and opinions on preferred alternatives, and fold them into the City’s official “comment letter” to the HSR. All collected comments will be provided to the HSR, along with the letter from the City Council outlining the City’s specific comments on the alternatives.

The community is encouraged to attend both of these important meetings on how the High Speed Rail may be built through Redwood City. It’s important for everyone to understand the scope of the alternatives that are being presented, and to provide the City with the comments and opinions which will help the HSR shape this project on the Peninsula. The HSR website is located at
