      On behalf of Communities By Design (CBD), a local nonprofit, and the
      City of Redwood City, I am writing to invite you to an upcoming educational
      forum on urban design on Wednesday, December 3, 2003, from 6:00 -
      7:30pm in Redwood City.

      Please help us "get the word out" about this exciting event by sharing
      this information with your staff and colleagues who might be interested in
      attending.

      If you need any additional information, please feel free to contact me
      in the City of Redwood City at (650) 780-7237 or

      Jointly produced by CBD and Redwood City, the goal of "The Forum at
      Redwood City" is to provide an on-going venue for professional-level education
      and dialogue about urban design issues.

      The first event in this exciting series will feature a presentation on
      "Beyond Zoning: New Approaches to Development Regulation" by Peter Katz,
      author of "The New Urbanism: Toward an Architecture of Community," and
      founding Executive Director of the Congress for the New Urbanism.

      Peter's presentation on December 3rd on "Beyond Zoning: New Approaches
      to Development Regulation" will address the following:

      Forward-thinking local governments are increasingly looking to new
      strategies to accommodate future growth. Why is zoning, long the
      mainstay of American planning, coming to be seen as an impediment to true new
      development types? Why are developers, who are typically concerned with
      flexibility above all else, starting to embrace these new regulatory
      approaches? How do such codes address issues such as housing
      affordability? Increased automobile dependence? Property rights? And why are issues of
      architectural style the least important element in this new approach?
      The fee for the Forum is $10 (payable at the door, checks or cash). The
      Forum will be held at the Little Fox Theatre, located at 2209 Broadway
      in downtown Redwood City.

      The presentation and discussion will be followed by an optional, no-host
      dinner at nearby Siciliano Ristorante Italiano, located at 2397 Broadway in
      downtown Redwood City, so that interested individuals can join the
      guest speaker and other Forum participants for continued discussion and
      dialogue.

      The target audience for the Forum includes planning directors, planning
      commissioners, city managers, and city council members from cities
      throughout the Bay Area, as well as urban designers, architects,
      planners and community leaders from the region.

      We hope to see you at the upcoming Forum on December 3rd!  Please help us "get the word out!"
