Parking plaza may reopen in time for Christmas

Menlo Park close to finishing renovation

Closed for several months, the parking plaza at Oak Grove and Chestnut Street in Menlo Park may reopen temporarily before Christmas.

City staff said the lot was closed for renovation, but the repairs are almost complete. "We are working to open it at the end of this week or early next week for parking," said Chip Taylor, interim public works director.

"However, the landscaping and finishing touches won't quite be done yet. That portion of the work will continue after the holiday season, which may involve some additional closures to complete."

That may come as welcome news to last-minute holiday shoppers, who have faced a shortage of parking in downtown Menlo since the lot closed in the fall.
