Tonight: 6 p.m. presentation on downtown plan

Healthy living, specific plan on agenda

The star attraction at tonight's Menlo Park City Council meeting is the draft downtown/El Camino Real specific plan.

On a 6-1 vote, the Planning Commission recommended the plan, with modifications, to the council.

There will be a 6 p.m. presentation on the plan, followed by the council's regular session at 7 p.m. The meeting will be in the City Council Chambers in the Civic Center at 701 Laurel St.

Before the open session, the council will meet at 5 p.m. in a closed session to discuss labor negotiations with the American Federal of State, County and Municipal Employees. Any action will be reported during the open session.

On the regular agenda is a request that the council consider a resolution to join the Healthy Eating and Living (HEAL) Cities campaign. Organized by the League of California Cities, the initiative provides a support network for cities trying to implement policies that "improve their communities' physical activity and retail food environments." Should be an easy vote; then again, this is Menlo Park.
