Menlo Park: Extended free parking downtown made permanent

 

A one-year trial to extend free downtown street parking to 90 minutes from one hour and plaza parking lot to three hours from two hours was made permanent Dec. 6, with the approval of the Menlo Park City Council.

Councilwoman Kirsten Keith asked staff to find a way to make the city's parking permits transferable, so that employees at the same business switching off shifts won't each have to have their own permit. Parking lot 4, where Draeger's is located, still has a parking limit of two hours.
