  1. Re: [willows_neighborhood] Laurel School Upper Campus Construction UpdateRead the original story

    Monday Jul 6 | Menlo Park City Council

    Kelly, I am always sad for us to lose a tree, but if it has to come down, there is a great business in downtown Menlo Park that takes fallen trees and makes beautiful modern furniture out of the wood. I would strongly support the school board allowing this local business to have the tree trunk to make some furniture that might be auctioned at your next school fund raiser.

    Monday Jul 6 | Menlo Park City Council

    If it must be taken down, how about doing something cool with the wood for the City, school, or neighbors? Someone could probably turn out something very nice and maybe raise funds for the school in the process.

  5. Fwd: bikes on El CaminoRead the original story

    May 19, 2015 | Menlo Park City Council

    Council Members, If El Camino is recon figured with bike lanes, it will imply a level of safety that simply will not be there crossing intersections and dozens of commercial driveways. Further, the weaving of cars and bikes for right turns will hamper everyone, including our older drivers.

  6. Re: Santa Cruz Ave. bike and pedestrian safety improvementsRead the original story

    May 13, 2015 | Menlo Park City Council

    Dear Council Members and City Manager Mcintyre, In thinking even more about what I wrote in point #3 below, I realized that rather than "imagining" what traffic safety engineers would say about the benefits of a straight bike lane with a 2 foot safety barrier vs. a heritage tree greenery, winding bike path and no barrier, we should know what traffic safety engineers recommend to be the safest approach. This shouldn't be a gut feel thing that lay people guess about and vote on.

    May 5, 2015 | Menlo Park City Council

    City Council: I support revising the City's Rail Policy to include options for elevated Caltrain tracks. If one of our major goals is to create certainty for developers and to increase safety, a firm commitment by the City for elevated tracks is the way to go.

    Dear Sir: I am writing in reference to The Almanac, issue dated April 22, 2015, article re MP Water District. It indicated that "the city plans to implement further water-use restrictions and the staff will recommend to the council that the city seek to exceed the mandated reduction".

  13. Menlo Park parkingRead the original story

    Apr 4, 2015 | Menlo Park City Council

    As a resident of Atherton who would like to spend more time in downtown Menlo Park, I feel that extending the parking time limit is missing the mark. A higher priority should be to increase the width of the parking spaces so that they can accept full-size cars & SUVs.
