Letter: Shopper finds Menlo's downtown fine just as it is

Downtown Menlo Park has everything — books, bakeries, banks, dry cleaners, drugstore, hardware, post office, stationers, and supermarkets — surrounded by the easiest parking on the Peninsula. Although I live in Palo Alto, Menlo Park is the center of my household trips once or twice a week.

I understand that Menlo Park is considering reducing the surface parking spaces and replacing them with high-rise parking. This will destroy the current ease of doing business in Menlo Park. Please retain Menlo Park's current surface parking, which residents and non-residents value highly; I can always find a place to park within a block of my destinations.

Alice Gross, Palo Alto
