Glad to hear that there may be further development in Menlo Park. Driving around other local cities lately--Redwood City, Foster City, not to mention Palo Alto--I am struck at how much more vibrant their business sectors are. Now if we can just do something about those unsightly vacant former car dealerships on El Camino....

It is good to see that property owners and city officials are working together creatively, and within the existing General Plan paramters, unlike the enormous Bohannon office/hotel project.
I hope the Joy and others will participate in the city's process to complete and implement a plan for El Camino and downtown, taking the visioning process to completion. This is an ideal time to establish that base so the plan is in place as the economy - and credit for construction loans - improve.
