Give input on park facilities
The city of Menlo Park is developing a master plan for its parks and recreation facilities and is hosting a community meeting Saturday, June 9, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Menlo Park Senior Center, 110 Terminal Ave., for people to weigh in on what they'd like to see added or done to improve park facilities over the next 20 years. Childcare activities and refreshments will be provided and translation available.
Split sales tax
Leaders in San Mateo County are considering putting a half-cent sales tax on the November ballot to raise money for local transportation projects. They've released an online survey to get public feedback on how the funding should be split among different types of projects, whether that's to cut congestion on highways, repair potholes, reduce local congestion, improve public transit, eliminate traffic back-ups at Caltrain crossings, improve bike and pedestrian facilities and/or make changes along the Dumbarton Corridor.
The sales tax could generate $80 million a year for the county.
In an earlier survey, 73 percent of participants indicated they would support a 30-year, half-cent sales tax levied by the San Mateo County Transit District.
