City Council of Redwood City to Consider Approval of New General Plan and Certification of EIR
Redwood City, CA - September 30, 2010 - Over the last several years, Redwood City has gathered a remarkable amount of community input, comment, and opinion on the New General Plan through a series of public workshops, Planning Commission sessions, and City Council meetings. Now, with a completed New General Plan and Environmental Impact Report (EIR), along with a Planning Commission recommendation for approval and certification, the City Council is scheduled to consider these documents at its October 11 meeting.
The City Council will hold a Public Hearing on Monday, October 11, 2010, at City Hall beginning at 7 pm, to consider the Planning Commission’s two recommendations: 1) to certify the Final Environmental Impact Report, and, 2) to approve the New General Plan. The community is invited and encouraged to attend and comment as this years-long project nears completion and approaches long-term implementation.
Redwood City's New General Plan is the blueprint and vision for the future of our community; it reflects the community’s values and guiding principles as it outlines the critical elements for the long-term physical development, quality of life, and public safety of the community.
The community has been a crucial part of shaping this Plan that will guide our community’s progress for years to come. Today, interested members of the community are invited to participate in this final step in the General Plan process, and join the discussion as the City Council considers approval and certification.
