Tonight: Belle Haven meeting on land-use survey results for M2 industrial zone

 

You clicked, you voted, and now you can talk about how it turned out: The Belle Haven neighborhood will host a general plan open house and forum at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 19, to discuss the results of the city of Menlo Park's preferred land use options survey.

The meeting will be held at the Belle Haven police substation, located at 871 Hamilton Ave. in Menlo Park.

The general plan provides the city's overall "constitution" for development standards, land uses and transportation in the city.

This update cycle is taking a close look at the M2 industrial district, which is roughly bordered by the San Francisco Bay, University Avenue, U.S. 101 and Marsh Road. (PDF map of area.)

Basic public services seemed popular, based on the survey results. Community members indicated they would like to see a grocery store, pharmacy and maybe a second train station in the M2 zone, and building heights of two to six stories, with retail at ground level.

The city is inviting community members to this open house and open forum to talk with city officials and learn what's going on in Belle Haven and the rest of Menlo Park. "This is a great opportunity to share your ideas and shape the process," the city says on its ConnectMenlo page.
