Thursday: How Menlo Park VA construction plans will impact neighbors

Public invited to community meeting

The Department of Veterans Affairs campus in Menlo Park is inviting the public to a community meeting on Thursday, Aug. 25, to discuss construction plans on the campus and their potential impact on nearby residents.

The meeting will run from 6 to 7 p.m. at 795 Willow Road and there will be a question-and-answer session.

In June, many Menlo Park residents expressed concern, and some outrage, about the VA's plans to cut down 25 trees.

Twenty-four of those trees would have counted as "heritage trees" in the city of Menlo Park, but were located on VA property, which is federal land not subject to the same protections.

Go to the event web page for more information and RSVP online.
