At the request of commission member John Kadvany, the Menlo Park Planning Commission may decide tonight (April 20) to reopen a discussion of the options for redesigning El Camino Real.
During a study session on April 6, the commission unanimously recommended a design that would create buffered bike lanes along the city's main corridor, with the caveat that the trees at the intersection of El Camino Real and Ravenswood Avenue would be left standing.
Mr. Kadvany, in an April 13 email to the city, asked to reopen the discussion, but that doesn't mean he thinks it was a bad recommendation.
"I don't necessarily expect or want us to revote or amend, but in thinking about the options since our last meeting I've seen some nuances which I think are worth stating for the record," he wrote.
He told the Almanac that those nuances include possibly combining features of two designs rather than choosing between them, and making intersection improvements a separate issue from changing the lane layout.
The complete agenda, with staff reports, is available on the city's website.
The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the council chambers at the Civic Center at 701 Laurel St. It will be streamed live online.
