Inner Harbor Area
Redwood City’s Inner Harbor area is a place of great potential and boundless possibilities for the future. Located northeast of US 101 along Redwood Creek, this diverse 100-acre area presently encompasses varying levels of recreational and watercraft uses, marinas and businesses, industrial uses, and waterways. It’s a crossroads, of sorts, between Redwood City’s Downtown and its Port, with access via Maple Street and Blomquist Street. Click map below to make larger.
Inner Harbor Specific Plan
The Inner Harbor area represents a unique and wonderful opportunity for the community, which will be realized through creation of an Inner Harbor Specific Plan. This Plan will be based on the involvement and ideas of the community as a whole, and through a public “visioning” process the Plan will lay out the scope and general guidelines for what the City and community imagine and envision for the bright future of the Inner Harbor Area.
Such a Plan is consistent with Redwood City’s General Plan, which invites the reinvigoration of the Inner Harbor area. The City Council of Redwood City supports the creation of an Inner Harbor Specific Plan, with a strategic approach, a robust public engagement element, and deliberate, careful planning efforts guided by a set of key assumptions, which are at the foundation of the effort.
The year-long community engagement and visioning process will provide both high tech (website, email lists, and other social media) and high touch (one-on-one engagement, small group meetings, large group workshops, and public hearings) opportunities for all interested parties to be informed and involved in the development of an Inner Harbor Specific Plan.

Inner Harbor Task Force
The Inner Harbor Task Force anchors the broader community engagement approach by serving as the primary advisory body throughout the visioning process. This group is comprised of 15 stakeholders representing public and private land owners, residents, and users of the area. Along with additional members representing outside perspectives including other public agencies, the business community, and environmental groups, the Task Force is poised for broad-based visioning and a holistic approach.
Supporting the Task Force is a technical working group composed of subject matter experts drawn from City and County Staff, key state or federal agencies, and outside consultants with expertise in complex planning and environmental issues. This group will work to provide answers to questions raised by participants and offer the technical expertise needed by participants to make informed decisions. As the Task Force is created by formal action of the City Council, it is subject to the Brown Act.
