This could turn into one of those occasions where people wake up only after the fact and wish they had gotten involved sooner. At the last workshop in April there was a good turn out of residents, but by “good” I mean about 100 people. Those 100 expressed a variety of ideas and gave input that the Consultants and City believe represents your views as well. I hope that they are right because if not, the City’s future is going to be heavily influenced by the participation of .3% of the residents.
If you care about Menlo Park’s future as I do, I hope that you attend the Community Workshop this next Thursday, June 18th, 7 PM at the Menlo Park Presbyterian Church Social Hall, located behind Ace Hardware, 700 B Santa Cruz Avenue, Menlo Park (enter from rear parking lot).
The City really wants more participation, and needs to hear from more residents. Contact Associate Planner, Thomas Rogers, at THRoger@menlopark.org or www.menlopark.org/specificplan
I invite community members to check out the photos and posters from the last workshop. The posters are displayed in the windows of Kepler's Books at the north end of the building. They present a picture of what the current thinking is.
