Aaron Aknin leaving Redwood City, His last day at the city is Feb. 13.

Redwood City Renaissance, or ruination, depending on your point of view, had many authors, but one of the key figures in the ultimate outcome of the city’s building boom announced this week he is leaving the city staff next month.
Aaron Aknin, assistant city manager/community development director, said he plans to form his own strategic consulting firm.
The lessons learned from the experience, Aknin said, is “not to be afraid to listen and to make changes to the plan where it can be improved without losing the overall vision of the plan.”
