Menlo Park: Relaxed holiday parking in downtown lots

 

The city of Menlo Park is rewarding holiday season shoppers with relaxed parking time in parking plazas, extending parking from two to three hours.

However, the city's holiday goodwill isn't enough to extend parking limits on street parking, which is still strictly enforced at one hour.

That will change on Jan. 4, when the relaxed parking becomes part of a six-month trial of extended free parking time.

Parking in downtown lots will remain at three hours, as it is during the holiday season, but street parking will be lengthened to 90 minutes.

The exception is the Draeger's parking lot, which will revert to two hours on Jan. 4.
