Redwood City moves Public Works, makes new appointments
April 10, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Redwood City is returning Public Works to a stand-alone department and making new appointments as part of restructuring to better keep pace with its fast growth and development, City Manager Bob Bell announced Wednesday.

As part of the reorganization, Community Development Director Bill Ekern will be named assistant city manager of development with a focus on carrying out the current downtown precise plan, preparing the plan’s update and overseeing major projects in the city like the Stanford Development Agreement and the Crossing 900 development.

Crossing 900 is the city’s largest project since Theatre Way with 300,000 square feet of office space. The city over all has more than 2,500 housing units and 740,000 square feet of office and commercial space in the works.

Taking over from Ekern will be Aaron Aknin, currently the Palo Alto assistant director of planning and community environment. Bell, in his announcement, said Aknin will provide leadership and oversight to the planning, building and engineering services functions of the community development department.

The restructuring also calls for extracting Public Works from the Community Development Department.
