Stanford University will host community workshops on May 28 and May 30 to talk about design options for a public plaza off Middle Avenue, part of its planned mixed-use complex at vacant car lots along the 500 block of El Camino Real in Menlo Park.
Stanford said in a press release that it has shifted the location and "dramatically increased" the size of the plaza as part of reworking the original proposal. "We realize that our first attempt missed the mark on the community's desires and our effort to adhere to the adopted El Camino Real/Downtown Specific Plan," said Steve Elliott, Stanford's managing director for development, land, buildings and real estate.
The meeting on Thursday, May 28, will start at 6 p.m., and the one on Saturday, May 30, will begin at 10 a.m. Both will be held in the small multi-purpose room at Encinal Elementary School, located at 195 Encinal Ave. in Atherton.
