Please join RSCA for its Annual Meeting and get the latest update on “The State of the Shores”.
This is your chance to get up to date on the issues that affect the home and family of every Shores resident. Hear about the “State of the Shores” and get a preview of the “State of Redwood City” and San Mateo County. Plus, there will be an update on infrastructure and other projects affecting the Shores, especially the waste water pipeline replacement.
As always, we try to end our Annual Meeting presentation around 8:00 PM so that you can have time to ask questions or talk with our guests about issues of particular interest to you.
(RSCA will also elect its new Board of Directors.)
Dress up your home and yard with lights, Santa, reindeer, snowmen and win prizes! Winning homes will be featured in The PILOT and on the web. If you would like to submit your holiday decorations for consideration and publication in The PILOT, we are asking that you take a photo of your home, apartment, condominium or townhome, and submit it to our Board of Directors for their official “judging” process. Of course, it’s best that this be a “nighttime” photo so we can see how brilliantly the lights and decorations shine in the darkness.
Submission Deadline: December 18
Each photo should be emailed to “” with the resident’s name and street address, including apartment or unit number if applicable.
Your photos must be submitted no later than the end of the day Monday, December 18th, as our elves will be judging all applicants the day afterwards. Sorry, no late applicants can be considered, as this is a lengthy process !
At the end of each August, your Redwood Shores Community Association has sponsored our Annual Levee Cleanup. To benefit the environment, the community bonds together to help beautify the nearly seven miles (yes, 7 miles!) of levee surrounding the Shores. And we need all the help we can get to cover those seven miles..
Date: Saturday, August 26 Time: 8:00 am until noon (lunch at 11:30) Place: Mariner Park, Redwood Shores, CA 94065 (click here for a MAP) Starters: Coffee, juice and bagels served at 8:00 am
Lunch: Meals for all hands at 11:30am
Crews: Qualifies as 4-hours of Community Service
The Shores Levee Cleanup is a fun community event. Residents and admirers of our beautiful Shores are all invited to join us in this very worthy annual event to help keep this neighborhood and wetland area clean. Volunteers will be assembled into teams and assigned cleanup areas. Kids and parents, adults and seniors are all welcome and encouraged to get involved. Family work groups handle their areas at their own pace; all help to keep these bountiful nature trails debris-free.
This is a great opportunity for Redwood City residents (and their friends) to enjoy a beautiful summer morning while experiencing a variety of birds and other wildlife. Volunteer and enjoy the splendor of our seven miles of shoreline, including incredible views of the bay.
We hope you will join us again this year for this worthy cause and opportunity to give back to your community. Please wear good walking shoes and consider bringing gloves; all pickup tools and trash bags will be provided. Take pride in enhancing this important Redwood City resource, and join us Saturday, August 26, starting at 8am.
Recology Systems Inc. provides the trash collection containers, and their assistance is gratefully acknowledged. Each year large amounts of trash are picked from the Redwood Shores Levee environment by our volunteers and removed by Recology Systems free of charge. Every piece of trash that is eliminated is important!
For more information about this event, please contact Nina Boire at .
To acknowledge his faithful community service and leadership, this year’s cleanup is again dedicated to Pete Hughes. Pete organized this valued community initiative from the beginning and gained the continuing support of civic, business, and community leaders who support this public effort with their time and resources.
UPDATE: The rain has held up and the Easter Bunny has made a delivery, so come on out to Marlin Park today! Hopefully the weather will cooperate…
It’s time for the RSCA’s annual Eggstravaganza, held every year at Marlin Park in the center of Redwood Shores. Bring all your children and a basket for goodies to the park for the big Egg Hunt, where toddlers and young kids can seek out goodies hidden in the grass and playground. Also, the Easter Bunny will be there to lead off the Egg Hunt and later to pose for pictures with the boys and girls, so be sure to take along a camera as well!
Be sure to arrive early so that your child can line up in the right age category — the eggs disappear quickly, and the whistle begins exactly at 1:00, so be on time! (Please limit your children to 6 eggs each so that everyone can share.)
The Eggstravaganza is run by RSCA, and is a great place to sign up with our organization if you have not yet had a chance to do so. Please join in in making great events like this possible in Redwood Shores!
The Belmont-Redwood Shores School District is planning to expand Sandpiper Elementary School to provide 6th, 7th, and 8th grades and a total of 220 additional students in grades K-8. This project is intended to offer the families in Redwood Shores a local public school option for grades 6-8 and to help reduce the overall traffic into and out of the Shores. In compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act, the City of Redwood City has commissioned an environmental study, known as an Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration. The document outlines what the impacts might be and how the District proposes to mitigate the potential impacts to a less than significant level. An analysis of potential traffic impacts is included. The study was published on November 4, and public comments will be accepted until December 6, 2016.
You can find the study on the District’s homepage, at www.brssd.org, and you can provide comments to Lisa Costa Sanders, Contract Principal Planner with the City of Redwood City, at 650-780-7363 or . Thank you!
Bring your kids in their Halloween costumes to Marlin Park on Saturday October 29th, 1:00 PM sharp for a spooky good time in the park.
We’ll have treats for the little ones, so bring a goodie bag/bucket!
** Event Ends at 2:00pm **
And PARENTS, don’t forget your cameras for photo opportunities with the Good Witch.
Our local RWC Police will also be available to provide voluntary FINGERPRINTING for children of parents who might wish to have this record for identification. Because a child’s appearance can change in a short time, fingerprinting can be the best way to identify a lost child.
Friends of the Library will be holding a BOOK SALE at Marlin Park for all of the Halloween Parade participants, so please visit their table and enjoy a nice selection of books to take home for your reading pleasure. Cash is appreciated !
RSCA holds this event each year for Shores children elementary school age and under.
It’s easy work and lots of fun to watch our children enjoy their “dress-up” time in Marlin Park. Your help will be greatly appreciated!
Here’s a great opportunity to clean house! Take advantage of this free event and dispose of your outdated electronic equipment properly & safely. Bring your old stuff to us and receive a charitable donation (tax!) receipt.
