Letter: Resident would suspend downtown changesMenlo Park's City Council insists on making substantial changes in downtown.
Under some citizen pressure it now plans to first experiment with some trials. In the meantime it has spent $1 million on a consultant, so it seems that it is just itching to spend more money to justify that $1 million. After all it's only taxpayer money.
As a taxpayer, I want to know whether any of that is necessary, or just nice to do. Can we suspend the process until the City Council demonstrates that changing downtown is needed and not just the desire by some to leave a mark?
