Consultants want $225K more for ECR Downtown Specific Plan Moneypit
Original post made by Roxie Rorapaugh on Dec 8, 2011
The city is also paying for city staff time, including a special lawyer who is being paid out of the city manager's discretionary funds account.
It is time to can the plan. Residents and downtown businesses are opposed to it. If enacted it will cause local businesses to go under, people to lose jobs and traffic to become worse. The entire character of the downtown will be changed -- for what!!!
The planning department staff are not listening to the citizens of Menlo Park, nor are they working in our interests. They answer to developers and special interests. Our city council needs to say no to this request and start an investigation of how so much money could have been wasted on this project. Otherwise, the new appropriation will be wasted and the consultants will be back asking for more.
Tell the city council to say no!
