Plan Description

The Downtown Precise Plan (DTPP) was created for the purpose of reviving the heart of Redwood City. The DTPP represents the detailed implementation of the broad policy directions contained within the Redwood City General Plan for the Downtown district.The regulations contained within the DTPP replace land use and development regulations previously contained within the Redwood City Zoning Ordinance for this portion of the City.The DTPP seeks to bring housing into Downtown which is affordable to a variety of income groups; concentrate retail uses on Broadway and around anchors of civic activity; shape new buildings to define a distinctive, unique, and livable form for a medium-sized downtown; and to maintain access, human scale, and walkability for the City.According to the DTPP, the majority of parcels along the southwest side of El-Camino Real have moderate potential for assembly and redevelopment. Underutilized parcels between the railroad tracks and El Camino Real north of Broadway have a prime location on the western edge of Downtown with potential for new investment.The DTPP includes design measures for El Camino Real, including the inclusion of traffic improvements, formal rows of trees, widened sidewalks, decorative pedestrian-scaled lighting, and attractive street furniture. The first phase of these improvements was completed prior to the adoption of this plan in 2010 between Brewster Avenue and Broadway. The remainder of the corridor will be improved aesthetically consistent with the first phase, as resources become available. Pedestrian walkways will be buffered from moving traffic by street trees, decorative boulevard lights and landscaping designed to project the image of a memorable grand boulevard segment.
