Absolutely, let the Redwood City residents decide if and how their city should spread out. After almost 2 years of DMB schmoozing the residents into thinking the only question on the table is how the salt ponds should be developed, let's change the music and ask if there should be any encroachment into the bay for offices and housing. The current zoning is in place for a reason. Tell this Arizona multi million dollar development company to go home and leave our precious San Francisco bay alone. Free dinners and this company's dog and pony show is an insult to the Mid Peninsula.
