You can't hear me now: Menlo Park has yanked T-Mobile's application to mount a cell phone antenna on a light pole in Nealon Park.

When is the city of Menlo Park going to wake up and start moving into the next century. Constant complaints from the City Council about lost tax revenue, yet nothing being done about the closed store fronts down town from greedy landlords(rot in hell) and now rejecting a cell tower because of concern for public safety?? What a total crock of crap! Should TMobile put a cell tower on the abandoned car dealerships on El Camino???? Nothing else will grow there now!
BTW.. open up parking in downtown Menlo and bring people to the area. WAKE UP COUNCIL!!

Very sad to see so many empty and downtroden building on ECR in MP - and with such a housing shortage. Then we're also paying cops OverTime to Increase Staff to write parking tickets. Nice solution to budget. Its backwards and I not only want to overturn the whole Council but all the CIty officials. This town has so much potential - merge more functions with neighboring cities, open up commerce, parking, fix buildings and be pro-business. Yes, Wake Up Menlo Park Officials. You're getting a "D" from me across the board!
