Tonight: Committee to review central Menlo Park transportation recommendations


Menlo Park's Transportation Master Plan Oversight and Outreach Committee will meet tonight to review a 400-plus-page working paper, completed by the transportation consulting firm W-Trans, that lays out recommendations for transportation projects the city should take on to improve safety and transportation options.

The committee will focus at its Sept. 5 meeting on trying to decide if the list of potential projects in the study for central Menlo Park is complete, whether projects should be taken off the list, if projects should be clarified or refined, and how to rank those projects by priority.

The committee previously met to discuss transportation recommendations in the northern part of the city, and has a third scheduled meeting on Sept. 25 to discuss recommendations for the southern part of the city.

After the three meetings are held to discuss the recommendations in the working paper, the committee plans to have a community workshop and online open house, with tentative plans scheduled for the draft Transportation Master Plan to be released and discussed in the spring, and potentially given final approval by the City Council in the summer.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Laurel School upper campus at 275 Elliott Drive. Access the meeting agenda here or the staff report and the W-Trans working paper here.
