Meeting on country club proposal rescheduledThe town has rescheduled the April 18 meeting of the Woodside Planning Commission on a proposal from the Menlo Country Club to renovate its facilities. The commission will meet on Wednesday, April 25, at 7:30 p.m. at Independence Hall at the corner of Woodside and Whiskey Hill roads.
The club's proposal would renovate the golf course, relocate two tennis courts, construct a tennis court building and, in the process, cut down 53 native significant trees, 166 non-native significant trees and 126 trees too small in diameter to be considered significant, according to a staff report. The country club property is home to 5,000 trees, the report said.
To proceed with work that takes place within a stream corridor, the club is asking the commission to amend the club's conditional use permit.
