What is the Community Vision and why are we doing it now?
The Belle Haven Community Visioning process is a current effort led by the City of Menlo Park to involve local residents in identifying the Belle Haven neighborhood’s priorities, values, community assets and resources. This process will engage residents and stakeholders in identifying the highest-priority services and programs for the Belle Haven community and create an action plan to guide future implementation.
Recognizing significant recent changes in and around the Belle Haven neighborhood, the City of Menlo Park began a neighborhood-wide Community Visioning process in January 2013. The City Council will consider this information in the spring of 2013 as they begin to address funding and program decisions. This process also seeks to organize and position the community to work effectively with the City and other groups to advocate for its needs and priorities now and in the future.
