Tonight the city of Menlo Park is calling a special meeting of the Planning Commission to present and discuss the El Camino Real/Downtown Specific Plan Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR). They want to bring some changes to downtown. The city seeks to promote growth while maintaining the village like quality. How can they attract all Menlo Park residents to downtown to support local businesses? What kind of businesses should be encouraged to set up shop? Who is not being served by the current set up? How can they change traffic patterns to accommodate and foster growth? Here is a link to the agenda.
The meeting will play on Channel 26 at 7 pm. And of course anytime it’s on TV you can watch it right off our website! Click here to visit our streaming page.
And if you can’t watch tonight, you can watch this and all past Planning Commission and City Council Meetings for Menlo Park, right here.
For me as Programming Manager at the Media Center, this is what I really like about what we do. The meeting was called with fairly late notice. The City of Menlo Park called us to see a) could we provide them with a camera operator and b) could we could take it live? Because we are local and super flexible we were able to say a resounding YES to both requests.
