Congresswoman Jackie Speier last week announced that the House has passed legislation totaling $16.9 million to fund 15 local community projects in the district, including two designated for Redwood City. 

The first is a $1.2 million project that will look to upgrade the Douglas Avenue pump station’s control components by providing improved remote monitoring and control capabilities. 

The purpose of this project is to replace decades-old infrastructure, to have a new and improved pump station that can better withstand any storm events, and to protect the city’s more vulnerable residents from potential station failure consequences, according to the press release.

The other project will receive $750,000 for the Taube Family Carriage House at the San Mateo County History Museum.

According to the press release, the purpose of this project is to enhance the experience of visitors, increase attendance, and draw customers downtown by creating a place that will permanently display historical horse-drawn vehicles, as well as creating a changing exhibit gallery that would showcase various automobiles and vehicles to the public.
