Tonight: Facebook to meet with public about expansion plans

 

Facebook will hold the first of several meetings with the public to discuss its plans for expansion at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 1, at the Menlo Park Senior Center at 100 Terminal Ave.

Facebook representatives are scheduled to talk about the company's proposed expansion at 301 to 309 Constitution Drive, which will include two new office buildings totaling 962,400 square feet and a 200-room hotel. The current buildings at the site would be demolished.

Plans for the project also include a pedestrian and bike bridge over Bayfront Expressway to connect to Bedwell Bayfront Park and the Bay Trail.

The environmental impact report on the project has been released and can be accessed at the Menlo Park city website.

See the draft schedule for future public meetings here.

If they approve the pedestrian/bike path to Bedwell Park, that will be the beginning of the end for that park. It will be prettied up and become a playground rather than a preserve which it is meant to be.

I believe corporations should not 'provide' changes as this.
