Bus Stop Benches Refurbished by Rotary Club

Original post made by Jim Lewis, Menlo Park: Downtown, on Oct 17, 2012

In this time of national elections, State ballot proposals and local city council candidates vieing for two seats, it may be hard to get excited about the recent refurbishment of three bus stop benches. Two of the three benches are located on Middlefield Road, primarily for the benefit of Menlo Atherton High School students and the third bus bench is located on El Camino Real, near Oak Grove Avenue.

Some of the students that use the bus stop benches located along Middlefield Road, near the Menlo Atherton High School, commented that the wood benches are installed on dirt. It would be helpful if a cement pad could be placed under the bench or better yet, a shelter provided for days when it rains. Would this be possible?

The benches are on dirt? How tragic! Look a gift horse in the mouth much Jim?

Thank you Rotary Club.
