Redwood City develops new long-term goals

Redwood City is giving residents a chance to give their input on the second draft of a new general plan — a document that outlines the goals, policies and long-term physical changes planned for the city.

The newest draft incorporates community input obtained since July, when the first draft was unveiled. Final decisions on the plan won’t be made for several months. The plan, as well as an environmental impact report, will come before the Planning Commission and then City Council in spring 2010, city officials said.

Residents are invited to a see a presentation on the “nearly final” draft of the plan Monday in the council chambers at City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road. The event will begin at 6 p.m. with refreshments and time to browse informational displays and informally talk with members of the city’s New General Plan staff. The presentation will be at 7 p.m., followed by discussion by the City Council and Planning Commission. Public comment is invited.
