Some Things to be Aware of This Week

In no particular order. However, chronological may be most useful:
  1. The heater at the Community Pool will be shut off for a short time period on Monday morning, starting around 9:30 am. This will allow the contractor to complete some work with the boiler. Scheduled swim periods will not be affected, but just expect the pool to be a little cooler in the late morning/early afternoon hours. Also, in case you didn't know about the pool's new Spring Program hours, click here to check them out.
  2. Monday night's City Council Meeting has one item on the Agenda - the 2008 Midyear update and an updated financial forecast through June 2012. Come and be informed about the fiscal state of your city and hear staff's recommendations to ensure its fiscal viability.
  3. Wednesday, April 16th is National Start! Walking Day. The American Heart Association's goal is to raise $1 mil. online, along with strive to get people in cities and towns across the country to take 1 million-plus steps. Go to to pledge your support and your commitment to Start! a healthier lifestyle. And don't forget to pack your walking shoes that day!
  4. Be READY for the unexpected. On Thursday the 17th, starting at 8:00 pm, the San Mateo Office of Emergency Services and Redwood City Parks, Recreation and Community Services is presenting the premiere of "Get Ready San Mateo County," a 30 min. video focusing on personal disaster preparedness. The video will be followed by a showing of the 1974 classic, "Earthquake" - starring the late Charlton Heston. The event is free for all, and takes place at Courthouse Square, 2200 Broadway, Downtown Redwood City. So bring your family, friends, and neighbors for a night on the square - a little preparation could go a long way!
