Those interested in the future of high-speed rail on the Peninsula may want to attend the Menlo Park City Council meeting Tuesday, Oct. 5.
The council may issue a vote of "no confidence" on high-speed rail, or make a formal resolution opposing the project, as Orange County did. Council members can also choose to do nothing.
On Sept. 21 the council voted to join Palo Alto and Atherton in a lawsuit challenging the project's final environmental impact report.
Palo Alto earlier last month also passed a "no confidence" vote, based on the rail authority's flawed ridership projections, estimated $42.6 billion construction cost, and deteriorating community relationships, according to the staff report.
The Menlo Park City Council meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the council chambers at the Civic Center, 700 Laurel St.
