Provide your input at upcoming Housing Element Update meetings and ongoing community survey

Posted on August 29, 2021 at 3:49 pm by Clay Curtin

Every eight years, California cities are required to update their Housing Element to plan for much needed new housing. Based on State requirements for housing in the Bay Area, Menlo Park is required to plan for over 3,000 new housing units in Menlo Park between 2023 and 2031. We will also be updating the Safety Element and creating a new Environmental Justice Element. We need your help to identify community values and priorities for this major planning effort. 

Join us at two upcoming online community meetings to discuss and provide feedback on the future of housing in Menlo Park.

Saturday, August 14, 2021
10 a.m.–Noon
Learn about potential strategies for new housing and provide your feedback

Thursday, August 26, 2021
6–7:30 p.m.
Discuss housing equity, environmental justice and safety issues in Menlo Park

Also, the community survey remains open through September 6, 2021. Your participation will be used to:

  1. Gain a better understanding of community values and priorities
  2. Create a foundation for future conversations about possible solutions and policy changes, which will be discussed further at community meetings in the coming months
  3. Enter you into a drawing to win one of twelve $25 gift cards to local businesses
