People interested in the parking situation in downtown Menlo Park are invited to attend a meeting Thursday, March 11, at 7 p.m. in the Menlo Park Presbyterian Social Hall, behind ACE Hardware.
The meeting is part of a consultant-led process to identify possible changes to downtown parking, such as allowing people to park longer in plazas and along streets, and installing meters. At the meeting, a consultant will present three separate "parking management plans," according to a city press release.
Some downtown property owners and merchants are said to favor increasing the hours people are allowed to park on downtown streets and in plazas, saying it will improve business.
Menlo Park's City Council approved the study in June.
