Reality Check January 27, 2012 at 07:48 PM
Keep us up to date on council and planning commission doings. Especially as it relates to getting more market-rate housing in and around our downtown. I'm all for affordable housing, but want to see it in an "inclusionary zoning" approach ( http://goo.gl/abzEU ) where it's seamlessly mixed among market rate units. Having separate/segregated clusters (or buildings) of all below-market (aka "affordable") housing is the wrong way to go.

I'd like to see a little more focus on the entrepreneurial community that's growing up in RWC. There are already a couple of incubators up and running and finding out a bit more of the companies that are in those incubators would give us an idea of how the city is changing.

I'd love to read more about the new tech companies in downtown. Also, FIRST Team 100 robotics team which is made up of Woodside, Sequoia and Carlmont kids is in the middle of their build season getting ready for competitions in Davis, San Jose and St. Louis. It would be fun to read an article about the team. www.usfirst.org

All, I really appreciate your comments. @Reality Check: That's a really interesting subject. I know we tend to focus on the percent of affordable housing. But what happens once it's implemented? Where are these units located within the development? Clumped together? Are residents able to afford them? @Lou: Incubators and start-up life would make for great stories! Canada just launched their first entrepreneurial center with an incubator. Will definitely check into this. @Sarah: I love that a bunch of tech companies are moving into town. Would love to see what they're up to. Thanks for the insight!

I'm also interested in housing costs, and the cost of living in Redwood City. "Affordable housing" has many different definitions because it is such a subjective term. It would be interesting to get a temperature reading of how people are doing here in RWC with today's economy, and with the cost of hosuing, for both homeowners and renters alike. I'm interested in Redwood City utilities and how they impact the consumers/residents. I learn more about proposed rate hikes from Patch, than I do from any other source. Those inserts and notices that get stuffed into our utility bills, or the random mass mailing somehow get heaped into the rest of the mail without much notice. But a story about such things on Patch is a good way to hear about it, plus get a feel for what other citizens are thinking on the issues. Please keep on keeping us informed about these topics. And finally, I'm also always interested in what's going on with the schools; budget issues, special programs, tax initiatives, fundraising efforts, school plays, etc. The education system is something that touches us all in one way or another, and it's important to talk about it.
