Ugly Empty Storefronts Hurt Downtown Menlo Park. Temporary Art Installations Would Make A Huge Difference

Original post made by Dana Hendrickson, Menlo Park: Central Menlo Park, on May 12, 2021

My purpose in writing this post is to ask Menlo Park residents to email their district city council members and tell them they (a) are upset with the dozen empty storefronts on Santa Cruz Avenue, (b) are no longer willing to simply wait for this problem to fix itself, and (c) want city leaders to eliminate this blight now by supporting and encouraging temporary art installations. The unattractive storefronts visually mar downtown, hurt existing retailers and discourage the arrival of new ones. Read entire post.Web Link
