Zoning Changes on the Horizon
The Redwood City Planning Commission will be holding a Public Hearing on Tuesday, October 18th, at 7 pm at
City Council Chambers
1017 Middlefield Road
to consider adopting a Residential Hillside Zoning Ordinance that would impose the same restrictions currently in place in Emerald Hills on hillside residents in Redwood City.
If passed, this action would affect Emerald Hills residents by lowering the market value of Redwood City hillside properties (as it did in Emerald Hills), increasing the possibility that mortgages on properties neighboring ours that are not currently “under water” will sink, further depressing home values in the entire hillside community.
If you would like to inform Redwood City Officials of your views on this matter, you can:
• Plan to attend and speak at the Public Hearing on October 18th
• Call and/or send an email to Redwood City Council Members
