At the direction of City Council, the North Redwood Corridor (Olive Avenue to San Marin Drive) previously was selected as a focus area due to the enactment of a development moratorium in April 2013. The Planning Division concluded a public charrette process that included two community workshops on September 14 and 28, 2013 to look at redevelopment potential of the area. The first workshop, attended by over 100 people, provided information on the local real estate market, identified opportunities and constraints for future redevelopment, and explored preferred land uses, building types, infrastructure options and design features. A group of 14 volunteer architects then met to develop these ideas and produce three alternative sketches. Over 120 community members evaluated the alternative design schemes at the second workshop. Staff synthesized the information gathered at the workshops and presented its conclusions and recommendations for land use designations and design criteria to the Economic Development Commission, and a joint meeting of the Planning Commission and Design Review Commission. Ultimately, the information gathered from the workshops will be folded in the new General Plan, along with policies and implementing programs related to the North Redwood Corridor.
