Town Square

Serving our city

Original post made by Elizabeth Lasensky, Menlo Park: Downtown, on Dec 11, 2006

Menlo Park has just elected and sworn in a new city council that has promised to be more responsive to the public. Now is a good time for Menlo Park residents to make New Year's resolutions to do more for their city. There are vacancies on various boards and commissions that need filling, and there are potential future task forces and community forums that could provide input and direction for our Council.

Well said, Elizabeth. I'm wondering if the new council plans to re-institute the Arts Commission. The old council decided not to continue it after all members resigned in protest of the council's rescinding public arts ordinance. Does anyone know if there's been any sort of interest on the part of the new council (or of residents, for that matter) to re-institute the commission? I'm vaguely recalling that Andy Cohen had expressed an interest a couple of years ago in keeping the commission alive, but that he was outvoted.
