State of the City Address at Fair Oaks Community Center and
Veteran’s Memorial Center in April
Community is invited to learn about the past year’s successes
and what is ahead for the Redwood City community.
Redwood City, Calif. – Mayor Jeffrey Gee and Vice Mayor Rosanne S. Foust will present the State of the City on Tuesday, April 1, 2014, from 7-8pm, at the Fair Oaks Community Center, 2600 Middlefield Road, and again on Thursday, April 10, 2014, from 11am to noon, at the Veteran’s Memorial Center, 1455 Madison Avenue. The entire community is welcome to attend these informational and interactive sessions where residents can meet the Mayor and Vice Mayor, learn about our City’s successes over the past year and what is ahead for our community, and have the opportunity to ask questions.
The theme of this year’s State of the City is a “New Day,” celebrating how the City, formerly called “Deadwood City,” is now bustling with hundreds of events celebrating our diversity, thousands of people visiting our Downtown now dubbed the “Entertainment Capital of the Peninsula,” and a healthy local economy.
The State of the City includes a short “movie” about our new day in Redwood City and a presentation that focuses on the City’s six Strategic Initiatives – Community Building and Communications, Government Operations, Transportation, Economic Development, Public Safety and Youth. These Initiatives guide the City’s delivery of services, programs and policies that benefit our community. The State of the City will highlight accomplishments within each Strategic Initiative and will include our future goals in these areas of service delivery.
The City has scheduled three opportunities for community members to attend this annual signature event. The first was hosted by the Chamber of Commerce at the Oracle Conference Center on February 28, 2014, and was attended by approximately 150 business leaders. In order for all members of our community to be able to participate in the State of the City, the City team organized the two additional presentations at the Fair Oaks Community Center and Veteran’s Memorial Center. Community members are encouraged to attend one of the sessions. Each will be the same in content.
“It is such an honor to be able to spend time with our community sharing all that we have accomplished together over the past year,” states Mayor Jeffrey Gee. “We have more to accomplish, and with residents as invested as ours, we know we will continue to make Redwood City even better than it is today.”
