Menlo Park Council passes resolution opposing Propositioni 1A

Original post made by Morris Brown on Sep 24, 2008

The Menlo Park City council last evening passed on a 3 -1 vote resolution 5826. Voting in favor were, Fergusson, Robinson and Cline. Boyle voted against. Mayor Cohen was recused because of personal conflict, since his home is so close to the tracks.

Note the final 2 paragraphs:

6. The City of Menlo Park does not wish to be in opposition to the Statewide High-Speed Rail Project. However, until the potentially critical local impacts described above are carefully worked out through the design process and evaluated in a project-level EIR/EIS, and until a financing plan that does not compound the difficulties facing local government is developed, Menlo Park cannot declare itself in support of the Project.

7. For the reasons outlined above, Menlo Park opposes Proposition 1A on the November 4, 2008 ballot.
