Menlo Park Draft EIR Fails to Comply with California Environmental Quality Act

Original post made by interesting, Menlo Park: Central Menlo Park, on Jun 16, 2011

Here is a copy of a news release attacking the lousy, ridiculous, $1.5 million down a rathole, proposed Menlo Park specific Plan. Heavily criticized for having gotten completely out of control, and driven by City Staff and the consultant, it continues on its way. Now a real legal challenge has been issued. Hopefully many heads will roll once this outlandish plan has finally been put where the sun doesn't shine.

Our family does much of our shopping in Menlo Park, including the Farmer's Market. Pete's Coffee, Trader Joe, Left Bank and other restaurants and shops. The proposed changes to the downtown area are poorly thought through. Why destroy the ambience that makes Menlo Park so inviting? Why would the planners discourage people from shopping in Menlo Park and instead patronize Redwood City establishments? The increased traffic is already class F during rush hour would only become that way for most of the day.

If it isn't broke, why fix it? Is somebody wanting to make big bucks and destroy our neighborhood? Once destroyed it cannot be fixed. Let's use some common sense and leave well enough alone.
