Upon receiving my latest email installment of Redwood City e-news (which you can get by signing up at www.redwoodcity.org), Malcolm Smith, their Public Communications Manager, highlighted to me useful tools that the city provides on their website.
Want to know when your street is going to get a visit from the City Street Cleaning sweepers, for every month in 2010? Then check out this link here: http://www.redwoodcity.org/publicworks/streets/pdf/Street-Cleaning-Schedule.pdf
An even more cooler tool is the Community GIS (Geographic Information System). This tool is a computer-based mapping tool that takes location information — such as streets, water features, schools and day care centers, neighborhood associations, census and demographic info, zoning, parks and places of interest, historic resources, parcel information, community information centers and more — and turns it into visual layers on a map, while also providing detailed data about a specific parcel.

A few new listings have recently popped up here in the Mt. Carmel area. The first of which — a bit of a fixer — looks like a great value in terms of price (at least on paper). Take a look:
- 327 Jeter: $585,000 – 2br/1ba, 1140 sq. ft. on a 6500 sf lot. Already has an offer date set (tomorrow, 1/13).
- 532 Ruby: $549,000 – 2br/1ba, 980 sf on a 4800 sf lot
- 266 Lowell: $949,000 – 3br/3ba, 1370 sf on a 6500 sf lot (this one is a re-list. Had been on the market for the past year or so, at a higher list price).
