People should note that although Menlo Park may change zoning to allow for higher density housing, it can not override any CC&Rs on the property. For example, while the city will allow secondary housing units on single-family lots, the CC&R for Oakville Terrace (the area between Santa Cruz Ave, Middle Rd, San Mateo Dr and Wallea St) specifically allows only a single residential unit. Anyone putting in a secondary unit can be sued by any other lot owner in the subdivision.

Housing density seems to flow downhill, like water.

The eastern density appears likely to increase residential segregation. Is this legal?
