After the city council voted in May 2012 to allow only retail businesses on the ground floor of the downtown corridor, a task force was assembled to create a plan to attract and retain retail businesses.
After nine months of discussion, the task force has created a survey to solicit suggestions and comments from the public about what they would like to see in the downtown area— Broadway Ave. between El Camino Real and Main St.
“The best results are achieved when everyone provides input, and we’d like to hear from you,” the task force has said, and it promises a quick, three-minute survey.
The city council created the task force after several residents attended the May 2012 city council meeting in strong opposition to amending the Downtown Precise Plan to allow both office space and retail businesses.
“With the survey, we hope to gain valuable information from as many people as possible about how and when they frequent downtown,” said Pamela Estes, member of the task force and a Redwood City resident.
The other task force members include:
- Jeff Badstubner; Vice President, Sequoia Realty Services
- Shirley Bunger; resident, brand and marketing consultant
- Steve Divney; Associate, Colliers International
- Mike Kastrop; resident, The Kastrop Group, Inc. Architects
- Stephanie Kolkka; resident, owner of Brick Monkey & Kolkka Furniture
- Lori Lochtefeld; owner Fox Theatre and principal, Lacewell Realty, Inc.
- Dayna Marr; resident, owner of Pickled, Active Aggie, Peacebank Yoga
- Brett Weber; Senior Vice President of Colliers International
