Menlo Park OKs streamlined review of Stanford project

 

The Menlo Park City Council voted 5-0 Tuesday night to hire the consulting firm ICF International to conduct a streamlined environmental impact review on Stanford's proposed [8.4-acre mixed-use development between 100 and 700 El Camino Real in Menlo Park.

The review is expected to take 13 months and cost $225,660, to be paid by Stanford. ICF International has offices in San Francisco and San Jose.

The consultant will analyze whether the office, housing and retail project will have significant effects on transportation, traffic and traffic noise, and on air quality during construction.

Because the proposed project would comply with regulations in the city's El Camino Real/downtown specific plan, a streamlined review is permitted, city staff said.
