High-speed rail officials will present plans in Menlo Park on Friday

Local residents interested in the design of the California high-speed rail system can get an early look at the rail agency's plans in a meeting Friday, Feb. 19, in the City Council chambers.

The meeting is tentatively scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m., but "an earlier start time for the meeting may be arranged," the city wrote in a press release. People are encouraged to check Menlo Park's Web site for updates the day of the meeting: Information will also be posted on The Almanac's Web site:

At the meeting, rail officials are expected to present and discuss preliminary information on how high-speed trains could run through Menlo Park and the surrounding area. The rail agency held a similar meeting in Palo Alto on Feb. 9, and is expected to release a formal analysis of the design options on the Peninsula March 4.

People from neighboring communities, such as Atherton and Palo Alto, are welcome to attend and ask questions, the city said.
