As a result, the City is in a better place today than in recent years, and we are committed to continuing in this direction, to seeking costsaving opportunities, and to keep building a solid fiscal foundation for the future. Some of our essential efforts are in the area of organizational efficiencies, to provide services to the community at a lower cost. A number of such efficiencies are being implemented across all City departments. For example, we’ve reorganized some City departments to maximize efficiency and reduce redundancy. This has resulted in an overall reduction in the number of City departments: less than 18 months ago, Exploring a City/ YMCA Joint Facility Here’s another great idea to most efficiently provide important services to the community: Redwood City and the YMCA of Silicon Valley are right now exploring the feasibility of creating a combined multi-use, multi-generational health and wellness facility in Red Morton Park, on the site of the existing Veterans Memorial Senior Center. The Senior Center is in need of major renovations, and the Y on Hudson Street is quickly outgrowing its present facilities. This presents a unique opportunity for combining forces to see if, together, we can create something that works for both organizations more efficiently and at a lower cost than “going it alone.” With the Y, Redwood City plans on extensive community outreach to gather comments and input on this idea. This discussion is in the early phases, and no decisions have been made. As information becomes available on this project, it will be posted online at redwoodcity.org/ypartnership. we had 12 different departments, and today there are nine. This offers cost savings by combining management and oversight, better utilizing support staff across former departmental lines, and providing for more effective communication among divisions that share common projects and programs. And this maximum efficiency equals lower costs to provide services to the community. Here are a few other highlights of our work in organizational efficiency: Employee Cohorts This creative concept utilizes crossdepartmental teams of employees to collaborate on developing ideas for improved efficiencies in the areas of technology, budgeting, purchasing, and administrative services. Since our employee stakeholders are on the “front lines” of the services we provide, they’re in a great position to examine our day-to-day functions and operations, and come up with ideas for what can be done to enhance program and performance efficiencies. We’re already seeing improved efficiencies in some of our administrative, purchasing, and budgeting processes, and there are several technological improvements in the pipeline which will offer a good return on investment while improving various functions. The successful innovations that come out of this process will not only have a cost savings to the City, but may better Members of the Technology Cohort meet to discuss improved efficiencies. engage the community, provide more decision-making data more efficiently, offer City-wide benefit, or help make the organization more nimble and better able to quickly respond to changing circumstances. Shared Services Working with other cities and agencies to share services is a vital element in our organizational efficiency, and we’re proud of the shared services models we’ve created. Our public works and information technology staff already sell services to other agencies, bringing in over $1.5 million in revenue annually through those contracts. Our human resources group is very involved in regional collaboration for employee training and development, which can reduce costs for all the cities involved. Last year we contracted with the City of San Carlos to manage their fire department, resulting in significant cost savings to both agencies. By providing centralized management oversight, as well as sharing certain fire department staff, we have been able to reduce our costs and those of San Carlos, making this a real win-win for both agencies. Our approach to alternative service delivery models and organizational efficiencies has not gone unnoticed! Recently, our City Manager, Bob Bell, was asked to present Redwood City’s efforts as part of a state-wide webinar on service delivery. In fact, this kind of shared services model and Redwood City’s other efforts in organizational efficiencies are spreading to other agencies, offering lower costs, more efficient services, and a leaner, more healthy government operation. Redwood City’s Next “Milestone” Project Initial work underway to prepare for Redwood Tower construction By the time you read this, work will be well-underway on Middlefield Road/Winslow Street near the Middlefield parking lot and Theatre Way. We’re very excited to share some details about what this means! Economic Indicators Dashboard Provides Useful Data Redwood City is bringing a renewed, sharp focus to economic development, and one piece of that is a new online tool - an Economic Indicators Dashboard, located on the City’s website at www.redwoodcity.org/eddashboard. This new set of web pages will be of enormous value to anyone seeking information on the economic conditions in Redwood City – people like business site selectors, builders, and developers, as well as local businesses and residents. “At-a-glance” key economic information on the site includes commercial building data and links, value of building permits issued, sales tax by business segment and business district, top sales tax generators, top private employers, economic news related to Redwood City - and more to come. The Economic Indicators Dashboard is a dynamic source of valuable information. A feedback page is included, offering users the opportunity to tell the City what kinds of additional information they’d like to see there, and what types of new businesses they feel would be a valuable addition to Redwood City. The Dashboard will be updated as new information becomes available and new data points are developed. Follow us on Twitter! City News: @redwoodcity Police Department: @redwoodcitypd Fire Department: @redwoodcityfire Events: @rwcevents Library: @rwclibrary Parks and Recreation: @rwcparksandrec The work you see today is the relocation of a storm culvert from underneath Middlefield Road and the Middlefield parking lot. This is the first step in preparation for a much larger construction job: a development called Redwood Tower, which consists of mid-rise buildings for office and retail uses, right where the Middlefield lot is now. Design for Redwood Tower is underway, and it’s the most significant new development since the retail/cinema project. The culvert relocation will continue into spring, 2013, after which construction on Redwood Tower will get underway. In the meantime, we apologize for the disruption, dust, and noise of the culvert relocation project. The good news is that all businesses are open during construction, there are lots of parking options and easy pedestrian access throughout the project area, and the end result will be something that the entire community can be proud of. During this construction, Theatre Way is pedestrian-only, Monday through Friday, and there is no through traffic on Middlefield Road/Winslow Street. But don’t hesitate to come Downtown and patronize our wide array of businesses and restaurants on Theatre Way, Hamilton, and Winslow – as well as Broadway and the rest of Downtown. Parking is easy in the Jefferson garage, Marshall garage, Sequoia Station underground garage, or Middlefield lot (enter the Middlefield lot only from the entrance near Jefferson). Invite your peninsula or south bay friends to take Caltrain to Redwood City, and they can meet you with easy pedestrian access to Theatre Way and all of Downtown. Share the anticipation, pride, and excitement about the Redwood Tower project, which is expected to start construction by May, 2013 and take 24 – 30 months to complete. Visit Downtown Redwood City and enjoy events and activities, shopping, and restaurants. The future is looking even brighter for Redwood City as a great destination, a thriving employment center, and a wonderful place to live, work, and play!
