The March 9 edition of the Daily Journal included an article on a proposed mixed-use development at 1125 Aguello St. in Redwood City. The article makes it out to be the greatest project in the world with lots of affordable housing on a transit-oriented site plus an office complex that will bring in 1,358 jobs, but neglects to state how many new housing units will be included. I looked it up on the city’s website, and the total number of new units is 33.

Good morning, David

I agree. Redwood City and other nearby cities need to take a more proactive approach in tackling the jobs/housing issue on the Peninsula. Redwood City has a goal to add nearly 7,000 housing units by 2030. The proposed development on Arguello Street that will provide only 33 units is not a positive step in meeting the City's goal. However, there will be some commercial interests with smiles on their faces if the proposed project becomes a reality. Cities on the Peninsula should focus on the housing issue instead of approving more commercial buildings when there are plenty of "Rooms to Let" signs already hanging on too many local business buildings.
