A presentation on the design of the California high-speed-rail system has been moved from 3:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 19. The meeting will take place in the Menlo Park City Council chambers.
The earlier meeting time was arranged to allow for more discussion with rail officials, according to Starla Jerome-Robinson, Menlo Park's assistant city manager.
At the meeting, rail officials are expected to present and discuss preliminary information on how high-speed trains could run through Menlo Park and the surrounding area. The rail agency held a similar meeting in Palo Alto on Feb. 9, and is expected to release a formal analysis of the design options for the rail on the Peninsula March 4.
Both Menlo Park and Atherton have asked rail officials for the tracks to run underground, in either a trench or a tunnel.
People from neighboring communities, such as Atherton and Palo Alto, are welcome to attend and ask questions, the city said.
The council chambers are located in the Civic Center complex, between Laurel and Alma streets.
