Briefs: City seeks comments on Facebook EIR for new campus

by Sandy Brundage

Facebook would like to swap a cap on the number of employees that can work on its new Menlo Park campus at 10 Network Circle for a cap on the number of vehicle trips, so the city is preparing to conduct an environmental impact report (EIR).

The Planning Commission has scheduled a scoping session for the EIR on Monday, May 16, at 7 p.m. in council chambers at the Civic Center at 701 Laurel St.

Menlo Park will also accept written comments on what items to include in the EIR until May 26. Email comments to Development Services Manager Justin Murphy at jicmurphy@menlopark.org or send to 701 Laurel St., Menlo Park, CA 94025.

Boys, girls, and hoops

Should girls be able to sign up for two spots on a 15-member boys basketball team? The Parks and Recreation Commission will weigh in on that question during its meeting on Wednesday, April 20.

The proposed policy would let up to two girls opt-in to joining the city's youth basketball team for boys. Meetings will be held in May to collect feedback from coaches and team coordinators, and the rest of the community will get a chance to comment in September before the policy goes to Community Services Director Cherise Brandell for approval.

The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. in the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center at 700 Alma St.

Meeting canceled

It'll be a quiet night in Menlo Park on Tuesday, April 19. The City Council has canceled its meeting, but don't worry, they'll convene again the following week, on April 26.

Job Fair at Stanford Park Hotel

Calling all restaurant staff: The Stanford Park Hotel is hosting a job fair on Wednesday, April 20, to find employees for its new Menlo Grill restaurant, which opens at the end of May.

The job fair runs from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the hotel, located at 100 El Camino Real. Contact Wanda Berrig at wberrig@stanfordparkhotel.com or.330-2764 for more information.

Easter bunny

The Easter bunny hops into Menlo Park on Saturday, April 23, from 10 a.m. to noon at Burgess Park. The city's annual Easter egg hunt is free. Children may collect up to four eggs, and the hunt will be broken down by age groups. Other activities include a bounce house and guessing how many jelly beans are in a jar.

In case of rain, the festivities will move to the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center at 700 Alma St.
