YMCA/City of Redwood City Project Update.   - December 2016

The YMCA of Silicon Valley (Sequoia YMCA) and Redwood City have partnered to create a shared intergenerational community center to serve current and future residents, ensuring the long-term vitality and livability of our community. Sequoia YMCA and the City hold a common vision for expanding health, wellness, recreational and social opportunities to meet the area's diverse needs, and this joint project will leverage each entity's strengths and experience.

The project includes a campus of buildings and spaces including Veterans Memorial Senior Center Building, Herner Pool, Wellness Center (Old 49er Building), Resource Building, and the NFL Alumni Building.

The City of Redwood City Planning Commission held an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) scoping session regarding the master planning of the new Veterans Memorial Senior Center/YMCA Project on Dec. 6. at 7 p.m.  The commission is invited interested members of the public to attend and provide input on this important proposed project, which is aimed at providing new options for aging and obsolete facilities, and expanding recreational programs for seniors and the general community. Read more about the project here.

At the meeting, the City discussed the initial scope of drafting the Environmental Impact Report (EIR), which will help identify potential impacts that could be expected if the project were to proceed, as well as potential mitigation measures to help lessen those impacts. The Commission will also explore what aspects of the project require further study.

There will be many steps and many opportunities for public involvement throughout the process. All comments received by email, letter, or public comment at the meeting will be incorporated into the draft EIR documen Click here to learn more about the project.
