Show Some LOVE for the Shores

As February is considered the month of LOVE, it’s a good time to start showing some love for the Shores, and your neighbors! Let’s focus on concerns related to three elements:

Clean, Courteous, safe

Clean & safe -- We are fortunate the Redwood City Police and Parks & Recreation Departments have a process for investigating and cleaning up recent graffiti spotted in the Shores. RSCA works closely with both departments, and encourages residents to attend upcoming RSCA meetings to get involved with issues affecting the Shores; it’s what we do! In the meantime, if you see people loitering in unlit areas after dusk, Police Chief Spicer recommends calling the police to investigate the situation. If you see something, say something!

Clean & Courteous -- Responsible pet owners have much to keep in mind for the safety and love of their animals, and for the larger community. ere are many problems that can arise if a dog is off leash, so please follow the laws as a responsible pet owner by keeping dogs on leash and picking up after them, particularly on bike routes, walking trails, running paths, playing fields and anywhere else it poses a health risk or nuisance. Show some love for your neighbors, and for your dogs by utilizing the dog park on Radio Road!

Courteous & safe -- Shores roadways are shared by many resident and visitor vehicles, delivery trucks, buses, bicyclists, runners, walkers, children and animals. As vehicles pose the largest danger, all drivers need to be diligent and follow traffic laws. Show some love for the Shores and your neighbors by driving as though you are being graded by the DMV! Make complete stops at intersections, wait until pedestrians and bicyclists have completely cleared the crosswalk before you start to turn into it (especially for our youngest community members as they are learning), do not drive faster than the speed limit, put down your phone, keep your eyes open for animals (and geese) crossing the road, huge puddles, or other obstacles.

As winter will soon pass into spring, please remember to be clean, courteous and safe. Keep the Shores a GREAT place to live and work!

FROM THE MAYOR

“What did you do over the holiday break?” My day job at a school affords me the benefit of having some time off over the holidays and that is a question I often hear asked as I return to work in early January. Besides spending time with family and friends, celebrating the holidays, eating too much, reading a few good books, and watching too many insignificant NCAA bowl games, I spent some time looking back at 2016.

A year ago in my introductory PILOT article as the Mayor,

I stated, “I am looking forward to the things WE can

accomplish together through the collective wisdom, strengths, dedication, positive outlook, and hard work of all

of us. Our community, our City staff, and our Council.” So looking back at 2016, what did WE accomplish?

It would likely take an entire edition of e PILOT to fully

discuss all that we accomplished in 2016, so here is a partial list of the things that stood out to me:

• Increased focus on affordable housing (Bradford Street project, Downtown, Housing & Human Concerns Committee/City Council study session).

• Focused on traffic and transportation solutions (City-wide traffic/transportation study, Complete Streets Advisory Committee, Woodside Road/101 Interchange Design).

• Added public safety resources and increased opportunities for community connections.

• Improved and upgraded infrastructure (recycled water, sewer systems, streets, sidewalks, and parking).

• Increased public art and cultural experiences.

• Fostered economic development (welcoming several new, innovative companies to our community).

• Enhanced financial sustainability (balanced budget, reduced long-term liabilities).

• Increased transparency (Council committee reporting, advanced public notice of major agenda items, community development website for projects).

• Improved communication (Council Communications Committee, community engagement initiative, blog series, Redwood City Conversations).

• Supported neighborhood quality of life (tree preservation, LED streetlights, infrastructure improvements, traffic safety, street sweeping, increased community connections with PD).

• Appointed a new city attorney.

• Addressed long-term and challenging issues related to the Docktown Marina while balancing multiple community interests. I want to congratulate and thank our community, staff, and my fellow Council members for coming together and accomplishing so much in 2016. Now I look forward to 2017!

Is Expanding Your Home Right For You? Whether you want to add a breakfast nook

Is Expanding Your Home Right For You?

Whether you want to add a breakfast nook to your kitchen, or a second story to your house, an expansion can dramatically improve your home. But building an addition will not work for everyone in the Shores. Here are four questions to consider.

1. am I allowed to expand?

First, check that additions are allowed by the rules of your home’s community. Every home in the Shores is governed by CC&Rs (Covenants, Codes & Restrictions). If you’re in an HOA, check with them first. Next, submit your plans to obtain approval from either the Redwood Shores Owners’ Association (RSOA) or the Redwood Shores Community Association’s Architectural Design Board (RSCA ADB). (Most homes east of Shell Blvd are covered by the RSOA, and homes west of Shell Blvd by RSCA’s ADB, if not by an HOA.) Once you have approval from the RSOA etc., you would go to the Redwood City Planning Department to obtain a building permit. Each of these steps has a lengthy review process to ensure each project abides by that specific property’s CC&Rs and all code requirements. You should take this into consideration when submitting your application.

2. How much will it cost?

Building an addition is a major investment in time and effort. Expect the project to cost between $300 and $500 per square foot. ere also may be additional costs you hadn’t planned for. For example, after expanding only the family room, you may realize you want to replace your entire home’s floors to match. Consider these details and budget appropriately.

3. Who should I work with?

You want to make sure that the new addition flows with the style of the rest of the house, so it’s important to enlist the help of an architect who can work with a licensed contractor, or a design-build contractor (for interior expansions). “Working with a design-build firm is a great way to streamline the process and control building costs,” says John Hammerschmidt

and control building costs,” says John Hammerschmidt of Los Altos-based Hammerschmidt Construction, Inc. (Just

of Los Altos-based Hammerschmidt Construction, Inc. (Just ensure that whoever you work with is able to submit accurate buildable drawings for all steps.)

4. should I build up, out, or within my house?

Building within the house’s existing structure is the least costly and easiest form of expansion because there are no changes to the foundation or roof. An example of this is adding a loft between a living room and a high ceiling. Building out may work if your lot is large enough, but you’ll need to comply with restrictions such as setback requirements. If lot size is limited, building up might be the best and only option. Whether you want to build up or out, you’ll need the help of a structural engineer to check your existing foundation and determine what needs to be done to support a second story.

ITS ELEMENTARY

Greetings from the Belmont Redwood Shores School District!

sandpiper school expansion e Sandpiper school expansion was recommended for approval by the Redwood City Planning Commission on December 6 th , 2016. Final review and approval is scheduled for January 23 rd , 2017, before the City Council of Redwood City. If the project is given approval (our PILOT deadline preceded the Council meeting), the site work may begin as soon as February 20 th . By using modular, off-site construction, we hope to have the new building in place by August 16 th , and we are excited to begin offering 6 th grade at Sandpiper for the 2017-18 school year. Subsequently, 7 th grade will be offered in 2018-19, and the school will be programmatically complete, kindergarten to 8 th grade, in 2019-20. As a reminder, this will be the first middle grades program in the Shores, it will offer our families school choice, and it will allow more students to be educated locally, without commuting in and out of the Shores. All good news!

february is Kindergarten enrollment Month We want all families in the community to know that February is enrollment month for prospective kindergarteners. If you know a family with a child in preschool, please share this information. Our initial school assignments are made once our first round of enrollment is completed on February 28 th , so there is an advantage to enrolling by that deadline. Enrollment procedures are on our website at brssd.org.

redwood shores elementary school field renovation Back in December, the school board approved a contract for the Redwood Shores Elementary School field to be renovated. As of the writing of this article, we are still waiting for a break in the weather so that the contractor can rototill a reasonably dry field. Once that happens, there will be a two-week project to re-grade the field, install topsoil, and roll out new sod. e new sod typically takes 8 weeks to take root properly. We look forward to the school having a new and improved field! If you have questions or feedback, I can be reached at 650-620-2703 or <mmilliken@brssd.org>.

COMMUNITY SERVICE UPDATE

Redwood Shores Elementary School's 3 rd grade Brownie Girl Scouts Troop ran a successful “One Warm Coat Drive”, ultimately collecting a total of 138 coats. Kudos to 3 rd graders Maya T., Samantha R. and Ashley H. for taking on a range of leadership actions that made the drive possible. ey designed and hung posters around the school, made a speech to all students and families from grades 1-5, and collected and delivered all of the coats. ey earned their Girl Scouts Philanthropist badges and raised awareness about those in need during this chilly season. Best wishes and thanks. Annie Cahoon, Principal Redwood Shores Elementary School

ST. MARKS CORNER

Lent isn’t for Giving Up; it’s for Giving In

by Richard Watkins Ash Wednesday, which falls on March 1 st this year, marks the beginning of the Lenten season. And as it approaches, I am

reminded of when I was a kid how each year I had to make the hard decision to give up something…gum. Actually, it wasn’t hard at all.

It was a fairly easy “give up” for me as I really didn’t chew gum all

that often. At the most, I would be missing out on maybe seven or eight gum chewing opportunities in a month and a half!

In my twenties, I shifted away from giving up physical things to try to give up behaviors or actions such as not using profanity. Unfortunately, I usually broke those attempts upon my first or second dealing with people at work on that particular Ash Wednesday morning. As I reached my thirties, my standard line was that for Lent, I was giving up hope, which always got a laugh. Now that I’m in my forties, having become more spiritually aware and mature, I have realized the true intent of Lent and the Lenten season. erefore, I have given up on giving up…and given in on giving in. It may surprise you (as it did me at the time) to learn that the tradition of giving up something for Lent (candy, coffee, fast food, etc.) isn’t something required by the Catholic Church. It is more

a penitential act practiced by Catholics for their sins committed

during the previous liturgical year. One could look at it as a self- imposed penance. As for the Church itself, aside from the prescribed days of fasting and abstinence on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, and the abstinence of meat each Friday of Lent, there are no other obligations for Catholics to give up something (unless, of course, it is something directly sinful).

Catholics are asked to give in to something. To give in to God and the redemption of life through the cross. Also to give in to prayer and to the reading of Scripture; to give in to fasting and to give in to the offering of alms. Catholics are also asked to give in to God by renewing their Baptismal commitment and to reconcile themselves with Him which was made possible by Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection.

It is important for Catholics to engage in “spiritual self-discipline”

leading up to Easter. e resurrection is considered the greatest

holy day of the Christian year (even more holy than Christmas,

which I think you can all agree is a pretty big one). erefore, it

is appropriate to prepare for such a holy day by engaging in such

disciplines just as Christ spent 40 days in spiritual discipline and fasting before entering into his public ministry.

And while giving up that Triple Venti, Half Sweet, Non-Fat, Caramel Macchiato with double whip and sprinkles or that Double Bacon, Mushroom, Swiss and deep fried Twinkie Burger for the 40 days during Lent might not be a bad thing for your physical health, it isn’t obligatory for…no, scratch that. ose should be obligatory give ups. Lent or no Lent. For additional information and times regarding St. Mark’s Lenten activities and services, please see our online brochure at saintmarksparish.com/weekly-bulletin.php.

MOTHER NATURE & ENTERPRISE 2.0

LOTS TO DO ON FEBRUARY 11TH

by Harvey Radin

Hats off to the RWC crews that maintain parks and other landscaped areas throughout the Shores. eir trimming and pruning work helps foliage withstand the rainy, blistery weather we’ve been experiencing over the past couple of months. Speaking of weather, doesn’t it seem like the El Nino rains a year ago were a drop in the bucket compared to all the rain this winter? Despite so much pounding precipitation, most of the trail along the levee has been drying pretty quickly after storms, probably because of the combination of dirt and gravel on the surface of the pathway. is, along with the trail’s design -- it’s gradient or slope -- is keeping stretches of the trail dry enough and, shall we say, up to speed for walking and bicycling. So, even when there’s rainy weather in the forecast, you know your jogging and walking gear and your bicycle won’t be sitting, gathering dust all winter long.

A while back in e PILOT, we talked about business

enterprise in Redwood Shores. Here’s more about our enterprising community. Did you know there’s a company here that is a leading platform for information about nonprofit organizations? And there’s a business engaged in “helping organizations safely leverage social media to enhance their ”

brand

social media activity related to an organization’s brand, technology, employees, customers and partners.” An executive search firm has an office here and there’s a company that’s “the leading source of user-generated buying

advice for outdoor sporting goods and consumer electronics.” And we have here in the Shores a nonprofit corporation with

a mission “to develop and promote state-of-the-art

engineering resources and applications for use in mitigating the effects” of a range of hazardous conditions. And during a hard day’s work, there are places to go where you can kick back and enjoy tasty cuisines and great coffee, or you can shop for groceries for home cooking. And there’s medical, dental, vision and skin care, financial services, real estate firms and hotels. Stay tuned for more about enterprise in the Shores.

From LYNN’s KITCHEN

(How a Connecticut Yankee embraced California Cuisine)

– Lynn Kathleen Adams

LOVE AT FIRST BITE!

February is such a funny little month. What other month can you celebrate such an eclectic range of holidays and events–from the pomp and circumstance of unceremoniously dragging Punxsutawney Phil from his makeshift burrow, to Super Bowl Sunday, to the frivolity of red roses, candies and special dinners to celebrate love on Valentine’s Day, to honoring two of our most famous Presidents on President’s Day, now memorialized on the third Monday in February, to the mysterious Leap Year which appears only every four years? My paternal grandmother and my niece shared February 12 th birthdays, and we always celebrated their birthdays with a special dinner that included a delightful dessert of choice. One of Grandma’s favorites was this simple yet elegant Raspberry Walnut Torte that my mom had perfected. It’s easy to make and delicious, so in keeping with Valentine’s Day, you might like to try the following dessert. Note, because it was February in Connecticut, we did not have access to fresh red raspberries as we do now in California. But do use them as a garnish! If you are a clever cook, you can probably easily adjust the recipe to use fresh raspberries rather than the frozen variety.

RASPBERRY WALNUT TORTE

1 ¼ Cup All Purpose White Flour

1 /3 Cup Confectioners’ Sugar

½ Cup Soft Butter (room temperature)

10 oz. Package Frozen Red Raspberries, thawed

¾ Cup Chopped Walnuts
