Tonight: Menlo Park downtown specific plan

Planning Commission continues review

Three down, at least one more to go. The Menlo Park Planning Commission meets tonight (Thursday, Aug. 4), to continue and perhaps finish its review of the proposed downtown/El Camino Real specific plan.

The goal? To send a list of recommended revisions to the proposal to the City Council, which will determine the final shape and vision for the plan.

The fiscal impact analysis (FIA) that was supposed to accompany review of the specific plan still won't be ready by tonight's meeting, adding an extra dimension for the commission to contemplate.

The FIA's release was delayed to give the consultant time to analyze the plan's impact on school and fire protection districts. According to the staff report, the FIA may now be out by the commission's meeting on Aug. 22.

Staff will present an overview of the plan at 6 p.m. The commissioners will then begin their review of the El Camino Real section of the proposal at 7 p.m. The meeting will be held in the council chambers at the Civic Center at 701 Laurel St.
