Woodside eyes country club renovations

The town of Woodside is considering a proposal to renovate the golf course and tennis facilities at the Menlo Country Club at 2300 Woodside Road in Woodside.

The Woodside Architectural and Site Review Board met Monday, March 26, after the Almanac's deadline, to review the project and provide a recommendation.

The country club is proposing to relocate two tennis courts to be adjacent to the other two courts, and to add a tennis court building.

With about 5,000 trees on the property, the club is asking to remove 53 native significant trees, 166 non-native significant trees, and 126 non-significant trees. In Woodside, a significant tree is one that measures 9.5 inches in diameter at 48 inches above the ground.

The project would include 180,000 cubic yards of grading.

The Woodside Planning Commission plans to meet at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 25, to consider adopting a "mitigated negative declaration" and associated permits for the project. The meeting will be held in Independence Hall at 2955 Woodside Road in Woodside.

Under the California Environmental Quality Act, a mitigated negative declaration is a determination that a project will not cause a significant adverse effect on the environment, or that the potential effect can be reduced to a level of insignificance.

In addition, the public can review the mitigated negative declaration and related documents at the Woodside Town Hall, 2955 Woodside Road in Woodside, from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.; and at the Woodside Library, 3140 Woodside Road in Woodside, between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Thursdays, and between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
