Great news! One small (but much appreciated) step for Menlo Park, one giant step toward removing the urban blight that has left El Camino looking like a South Bronx death zone. Many thanks to the Planning Commission for setting a high bar, and then for giving rapid approval once the threshold was met.

Bravo! A big thank you to the Planning Commission. We need more night life in Menlo Park. Hopefully something can be done across the street, as Su Hong & The Menlo Hub are both well as the other vacant lots in Menlo Park along the El Camino.

Looking forward to the BBC re-opening. Any idea of what the timeline is? I have lots of fellow co-workers in the area who really want a new place to go after work but we haven't seen any renovation activity at the site. Any news on this front?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
