Redwood City to Host Town Hall This Wednesday on Pete's Harbor Project

Town Hall is a follow-up community gathering to the City's two recent Pete's Harbor Open Houses

Redwood City, CA - The City of Redwood City will host a town hall style community gathering on the Pete's Harbor Project on Wednesday, November 20, 2013 from 7-9pm in City Hall Council Chambers at 1017 Middlefield Road, Redwood City 94063. More than 100 community members attended the City's recently hosted Pete's Harbor Open Houses, and the City hopes for continued public participation at this town hall that will provide another opportunity for engaged residents to learn about the current project design and how it has changed from the original 2012 proposal.

Originally submitted to the City in July 2012, the project has been revised over the past year to incorporate the broader community's feedback, as well as other stakeholders such as the State. The current project proposal, submitted July 2013, includes 411 residential units and associated parking, a clubhouse, a community pool, and walkways. Public amenities include public open space areas along Smith Slough, a water trail, bocce ball court, benches, BBQ, tot lot, parking, hand-rowed boat launch, and amenities that include a spur of the Bay Trail. Very importantly, the design includes a commercial marina that may accommodate up to 65 boats, and will be accessible to both the general public and future residents of the homes of Pete's Harbor on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Based on the comments and questions gathered during the recent open houses, staff will provide a brief presentation of the revised project, summarize comments received at the recent meetings and provide general responses, and will host a question and answer session with town hall attendees.

"Many residents participated in the Open Houses, asked insightful questions, and offered constructive suggestions for the Pete's Harbor Project," states Bob Bell, City Manager of Redwood City. "This town hall will provide engaged residents another opportunity to collectively engage in a dialog about this project that will provide community value both in terms of housing and public amenities."
