Redwood City Improvement Association Shapes Impressive Future for Downtown Redwood City

The Redwood City Improvement Association, a non-profit community benefit district ran by a board of property owners, residents, community members and businesses, is on the move to reenergize and beautify downtown Redwood City by enhancing the neighborhood to make it an even more desirable location for all ages to live, work and play.

“We already have prosperous businesses in the neighborhood, from amazing eateries and cafes to our historic Courthouse Square and great shopping spots,” said Eric Lochtefeld, Redwood City Improvement Association’s interim president. “We have the foundation set to create a lively and appealing downtown for all demographics—families, young professionals and residents. The Redwood City Improvement Association was formed to heighten the lifestyle and culture that already exists, taking it to the next level.”

The Redwood City Improvement Association was formed less than a year ago, holding its first board meeting last September. Since then, the Redwood City Improvement Association has invested in brightening the city with a 3-D video projection mapping light show, which projects onto the San Mateo County History Museum every Tuesday night at 8:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Along with this, the Redwood City Improvement Association hired J&S Maintenance Service to provide power washing, street cleaning, trash pickup, day porters—seven days a week and maintenance of overall beautification efforts for the district. The association also entered into a contract with All About Parking to continue valet parking services at its two established locations and expanded to a third at the corner of Main and Broadway this past June.
