Tonight: Menlo commission considers maximum M2 development guidelines

 

How much new development should be allowed within Menlo Park's M2 zone? The Planning Commission will tackle that question during tonight's (June 8) meeting.

As part of an update to the general plan, the city's overall development framework, Menlo Park has been focusing on the M2 industrial zone, located roughly between the San Francisco Bay, University Avenue, U.S. 101 and Marsh Road.

According to the staff report, the land use options that have been presented during a series of community workshops in the M2 zone could potentially result in approximately:

■ 2.1 million square feet of new nonresidential buildings.

■ 4,500 new housing units.

■ 5,500 new jobs.

■ 600 new hotel rooms.

The Planning Commission's recommendation will go to the City Council for discussion on June 16.

Review the complete agenda and associated staff reports online.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the council chambers at the Civic Center at 701 Laurel St. It will be streamed live.
