Three spots open on MP Planning Commission


Applications for Menlo Park's Planning Commission are due Friday, April 2.

Three spots on the seven-member commission are up for appointment for four-year terms, which would begin May 1. The commission considers use permits and variances, and makes recommendations to the City Council on whether or not to re-zone properties. Other than the council, it is the city's only decision-making body.

Two commissioners, Melody Pagee and Henry Riggs, have reached the two-term limit. Commission Chair Jack O'Malley, appointed by the previous council majority, is wrapping up his first term and intends to apply for another, he told The Almanac.

The commission meets twice a month on Mondays at 7 p.m. The council makes all appointments.

Click here to download an application, or pick one up at the city administration building in the Civic Center complex, between Laurel and Alma streets. For more information, contact City Clerk Margaret Roberts at or 330-6620.
