Redwood City Street of Lights

December 17, 2011

If you want an enjoyable drive through Redwood City, please see Topaz Street. I also found Dewey Street to be great. Maybe, it is just because the street uses all the homes nationalities for their decorations. Very fun!

Come and see 411 Topax, that really surprises us with their tremendous display. We all appreciate all the Christmas Spirit!

Mezesville Map from 1856 (RWC)

August 13, 2011

Town of Mezesville, which was the historically area from 1856. This photo is compliments of the Redwood City Redevelopment site.
This is the original town map as laid out by Simon Mezes. The basic street pattern is still there, although many of the street names have been changed. The creek was covered over during the mid 1900s.

It is interesting that until I did some research did I even hear about how Redwood City began and started with Mezesville. Very interesting!

Proposed Youth Sports Area for Belmont/Shores

November 30, 2009

The Parks and Recreation Department is proposing a joint use agreement between the Belmont Redwood Shores Elementary School District (District) and the City of Belmont (City) for District owned athletics. This agreement is vital for community youth sports because it provides a safe and affordable home for youth sports in Belmont, providing the development of cognitive and social skills, teamwork, and health benefits that come from participation in youth sports. The proposed agreement would last 10 years and would allow the City to continue to use and schedule the four at District facilities. In return the City would continue to maintain the  field use at four fields: Fox, Ralston, Central, and Nesbit.fits f elds, while providing opportunities to expand summer programs.


District will not lose current revenue from existing users, and the City will not be charged for using the fields and pay half of the cost of watering. Under this new agreement the fields or other District facilities. Although the agreement will result in a slight increase in cost to the City, these costs will potentially be offset by the revenue opportunities created by the partnership. Without the agreement, the school district would have to incur the water and maintenance costs for the four increased fees for youth sports teams and requests for additional time on City and Barrett. The City and District are working in partnership to avoid that situation and to create opportunities for physical education and teamwork fields, resulting in fields, including the Belmont Sports Complex, Cipriani, McDougal, and Barrett. The City and District are working in partnership to avoid that situation and to create opportunities for physical education and teamwork in Belmont.
