Redwood City has unveiled a new online tool, the economic indicators dashboard, offering information on the city’s current conditions like sales tax data and the value of building permits issued.
The dashboard also includes at-a-glance information such as commercial building data and links, sales tax by business segments and districts, top sales tax generators, top private employers and economic news related to Redwood City.
The dashboard is continually updated as new and more information is available.
"This dashboard is so straightforward and user-friendly yet it provides a great deal of valuable information that businesses will find indispensable,” said City Manager Bob Bell in a prepared announcement of the new online feature.
Vice Mayor Jeff Gee and councilmembers Rosanne Foust and Jeff Ira, both members of the mayor’s economic development subcommittee, helped create the dashboard and its web pages. The site also includes a feedback page for users to tell the city what other kinds of information they’d like to access and what new businesses would be a valuable addition to the city. The dashboard is available on the city’s website at www.redwoodcity.org/eddashboard
