Tuesday: Specific plan not on Menlo Park council agenda


The Menlo Park City Council has a full agenda on Tuesday, Oct. 20, even though it will not continue its review of the El Camino Real/downtown specific plan. That review has been tentatively postponed until the council's Nov. 17 meeting.

Two items the council is expected to consider include changing free parking limits in downtown Menlo Park and approving an agreement between the city of Menlo Park and 36 of its employees that could give them a 3 percent pay hike.

The council may approve a sponsorship policy for the community services department, laying out clearer guidelines for businesses and organizations to sponsor or co-sponsor events. The council may also adopt a resolution of support to expand the Menlo-Atherton Little League snack bar and storage facility.

The council will get caught up on the the El Camino Real Corridor study, listen to an update from Peninsula Clean Energy about a potential community choice energy option, and hear plans to engage community members around park improvements.
