Educational Forum on Urban Design, April 7, Redwood City
Communities By Design (CBD), a local nonprofit training and education organization, and the City of Redwood City will be holding another exciting EDUCATIONAL forum on urban design on Wednesday, April 7, from 6:00 - 7:45 PM in Redwood City.
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 fifth event in this exciting series will feature a presentation on "El Camino Real: Can a Declining Main Street Become a Grand Boulevard?" A presentation will be made by one of California's most talented urban designers, Mr. Terry Bottomley. Mr. Bottomley has over 20 years of preparing development master plans, design guidelines, concept designs, and construction drawings for streets and public spaces.
The fee for the Forum is $10 (payable at the door, checks or cash). Refreshments will be served. The Forum will be held at the Little Fox Theatre, located at 2209 Broadway in downtown Redwood City. (Please note that due to State regulations, attendance at the Little Fox Theatre is limited to persons over 21.)
The presentation and discussion will be followed by an optional, no-host dinner at a nearby restaurant 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.
