City Council of Redwood City Considering Final Approval of Downtown Precise Plan
Redwood City, CA - January 13, 2011 - Redwood City’s new Draft Downtown Precise Plan is a blueprint for what our Downtown will be: how we can continue creating an exciting, active, and livable Downtown with interesting building forms and attractive, inviting spaces. Now, after a great deal of community discussion, input, and comment, the Draft Downtown Precise Plan and its draft Final Environmental Impact Report are complete, and the City Council will now consider the Planning Commission’s two recommendations: certification of the Precise Plan’s Final Environmental Impact Report, and, 2) final approval of the Downtown Precise Plan.
The City Council will hold a Public Hearing on Monday, January 24, 2011, at City Hall (1017 Middlefield Road) beginning at 7 pm, to consider those two recommendations.
Many members of the Redwood City community have been involved with the development of Redwood City's Downtown Precise Plan. Last fall, the Plan’s Draft EIR went through a 45-day public circulation period (from September 21, 2010 thru November 5, 2010), and the Planning Commission held public hearings in September and October to take comments, then held a public hearing in December to finalize its recommendations to the Council.
Interested members of the community are invited to participate in this final step in the Downtown Precise Plan process, and join the discussion as the City Council considers final adoption. More information about the Downtown Precise Plan is online at www.redwoodcity.org/preciseplan.
