Mayor Kirsten Keith and MidPen Housing are hosting a community meeting Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2017, to solicit community input on MidPen’s 1283 Willow Road and 335 Pierce Street properties. The meeting will be held at the Menlo Park Senior Center located at 110 Terminal Avenue. The City is conducting extensive outreach to ensure that residents and stakeholders are aware of the meeting, including mailing 1900 post cards to every address in the Belle Haven Neighborhood, social media posts, email notifications to the City’s housing list, and the affordable housing stakeholders, who were actively engaged in ConnectMenlo. The need for additional affordable housing was a recurring theme expressed by community members during the ConnectMenlo process. 

The meeting will start with a presentation of the project options and then move to an open house format with stations for attendees to give input. This is an opportunity for residents and stakeholders to review the project concepts and provide feedback on design, zoning, retail, project schedule and local preference.

For more information, please contact Meghan Revolinsky. Please share this notice with your friends and neighbors and we look forward to seeing you.

Staff from the Santa Clara County Planning Department presented information on the Stanford University General Use Permit Draft EIR at a Community Meeting held Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017, at the Menlo Park City Council Chambers. Stanford has submitted an application to Santa Clara County for an updated General Use Permit to authorize the next phase of campus land use in the coming years. The process involves internal examination of the university’s academic and space needs as well as consultation with neighbors and community partners. Stanford seeks approval of an updated 2018 General Use Permit that is expected to extend through 2035.

The Draft EIR and the Stanford Application for the 2018 General Use Permit are available on the Santa Clara County website. Presentation slides are available online and the meeting can be watched on YouTube. The 60-day public review period is Oct. 6–Dec. 4, 2017. All comments must be received by 5 p.m., Monday, Dec. 4, 2017. The City Council is tentatively scheduled to consider a comment letter on the Draft EIR at its meeting of Nov. 29, 2017.

Main Library siting meeting

Posted on November 17, 2017 at 5:58 pm by Meghan Revolinsky

By: Susan Holmer

Community members are invited to the first of three meetings to discuss options for siting a new Main Library on the Burgess Campus. In this meeting background on the Main Library Space Analysis Process will be shared and community members will engage in a conversation regarding the best location on the campus for a potential new library. We will examine programming opportunities a new building will offer, explore additional civic and community uses that might take place in the new building and offer insight into the desired architectural character for a new library on the Burgess Campus.

This is one of three meetings for community input. Others are scheduled for Jan. 17, 2018, and Feb. 15, 2018. FAQs and background documentation for the project may be found on the project webpage
