Good morning –
This is a quick reminder about two open house/information meetings to discuss a proposed pilot project for improvemetns to parts of Farm Hill Boulevard and Jefferson Avenue. The first open house is tomorrow night, Tuesday, September 25, and I also wanted to let you know that you can take a look at the project documents online.
To see the documents, go to www.redwoodcity.org/gis, click on the disclaimer, then on “City Projects” followed by “Infrastructure Projects,” and then select “Farm Hill Blvd. Street Design Project.” There, you can select from a number of project documents.
This Project is designed to make the streets safe, comfortable, and accessible for people walking, riding bikes, and driving on sections of these roadways in western Redwood City. We held a meeting on this in June, and community members provided a great deal of comment and input, resulting in draft designs for the project. These open houses are an opportunity for you to review and learn about the draft designs, talk with City staff about the proposed road improvements, and comment on the design concepts. Each of the open houses will have the same content; it is not necessary to attend both. The improvement project is proposed as a pilot project for Farm Hill Boulevard between Jefferson Avenue and the western City limits, and on Jefferson Avenue from Farm Hill to Alameda de las Pulgas.
The open houses are scheduled for:
- Tuesday, September 25, 2012
5:30 – 7:30 pm (Drop in any time)
Multi-use building at Roy Cloud Elementary School, 3790 Red Oak Way
- Wednesday, October 3, 2012
5:30 – 7:30 (Drop in any time)
Council Chambers at City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road
You’re invited to participate in shaping the development of the designs for improvement to these roadways. After gaining community input at these two open house meetings, staff expects to take a final recommendation to the City Council to consider whether this pilot project is preferred, or if the roadways should remain as they are. If approved, some improvements could be installed this year. The roadway is also scheduled for resurfacing in 2013.
