Atherton: Little League asks for more time with ball park proposal

by Renee Batti

The Atherton public and City Council members are likely to call it an early night on Wednesday, Sept. 18, after two potentially lengthy agenda items — approval of a plan for Little League facilities in the park and a public hearing on an amendment to a Sacred Heart Schools' conditional use permit — were dropped from the agenda late last week.

The Menlo-Atherton Little League officials who are working on the ball park plans asked for a postponement of the item after the agenda was posted last week, said City Clerk Theresa DellaSanta. The Little League plans to build a covered grandstand and make a series of improvements to the existing ball field in Holbrook-Palmer Park, an idea that was approved in concept by voters last November.

The Sacred Heart conditional use permit item is being continued, at Sacred Heart's request, to the Dec. 18 meeting.

Go to to see the now-shorter agenda, which includes a discussion of a staff recommendation to direct between $1.1 million and $2 million of the town's surplus toward paying down the town's unfunded long-term liabilities resulting from post-employment employee benefits.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the Town Council Chambers at 94 Ashfield Road, in the Town Center.
