Park Theatre - The New Standard
Original post made by Visioning Committee Observer, Menlo Park: other, on Jul 12, 2008
Signs and symbols of blight are creeping into the downtown area. It seems to be happening on a daily basis. There are vacancies on both sides of El Camino Real and vacancies on both sides of Santa Cruz Avenue.
Is the visioning process only focused on the next 20 years, or does it also apply to what people want in the near future? How costly can it be to add a few flowers? How costly can it be to paint over the bare plywood on the Park Theatre? What ever happened to 'ol fasioned steam cleaning of the sidewalks?
If the Menlo Park Visioning Committee is serious about the future, perhaps some of that effort can go into the present. A little tender loving care (TLC) may go a long ways to stimulate economic vitality, community spirit and pride.
Maybe it can begin with some low cost fresh paint on the Park Theatre.
