Town Square

Atherton Library Site

Original post made by whatever, Menlo Park: Central Menlo Park, on Sep 17, 2012

I know the city owns the parking area to the northwest of the police station but it was my understanding that the city also owns the train station and its parking area. The train only stops at Atherton on weekends now. Why not build the library on one of those lots and there's still plenty of room for parking.

If Skip Law's excellent proposal was accepted then the value of this site would increase substantially and then the Town would enjoy a very nice windfall if CalTrain/HSR exercised the right of eminent domain to widen the railroad right-of-way.
