The Menlo Park Planning Commission meets tonight (July 28) to study the downtown portion of the proposed specific plan.
The downtown zone remains the most controversial part of the specific plan, judging by public comment. Suggested design features include widening sidewalks along Santa Cruz Avenue, creating a permanent farmers' market, and building two parking garages.
Staff will present an overview of the plan at 6 p.m. The commissioners will then begin their review at 7 p.m. The meeting will be held in the council chambers at the Civic Center at 701 Laurel St.
The next -- and potentially last -- session of the Planning Commission's review is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 4.
