Just got this in, from Malcolm Smith, the Public Communications Manager for Redwood City.
Every day, news headlines confirm what we all know ~ housing matters! In fact, the quality of life in our community is directly linked to how we address the challenge of providing homes to people who work and grow up here. If you live or work in Redwood City, Threshold 2009 and the City of Redwood City invite you to join a Community Conversation on long-term housing solutions in San Mateo County. This is part of an ongoing campaign to welcome all perspectives to the table and build a public voice for housing solutions. This is an opportunity to increase understanding, exchange perspectives, and express your views on county-wide housing choices.
