Hillview campus rebuild: public review period starts

Hillview Middle School in Menlo Park is about to undergo a major reconstruction project. Before that happens, environmental data about the project is up for public scrutiny.

The so-called preliminary environmental assessment (PEA) is available for public review at the Menlo Park City School District office, 181 Encinal Ave. in Atherton.

The review period runs until March 10. A public hearing on the PEA report is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 9, at the district office.

Plans for the campus include two-story classroom wings, an auditorium, parking lots and other facilities to accommodate an anticipated jump in enrollment, from around 700 students to an estimated 974 students by 2016.

Most of the current buildings on campus will be torn down once the new facilities are completed.

Written comments on the report may be faxed to 329-1506 or sent to: Ahmad Sheikholeslami, director of facility planning and construction, 181 Encinal Ave., Atherton, CA 94027. For information, call Mr. Sheikholeslami at 321-7140, ext. 5614.
