Community members tour Menlo Park atop double decker bus as part of General Plan Update
We received the following email from Deanna Chow, Senior Planner with the City of Menlo Park:
“As part of Menlo Park’s General Plan Update, we took an open top, double decker bus and toured Menlo Park [on October 1]. It was an opportunity for members of the community to explore the City and learn more about various land uses and transportation concepts and issues in the City.
“We will be doing a second mobile workshop (on the Big Red Bus) on October 14. The bus will be leaving from 155 Constitution Drive. People who would like to attend should arrive 15 minutes before the tour starts. The bus will leave at 12:30 pm and return at approximately 3:30 pm.
“We will tour nearby employment districts/business parks to investigate best practices that could be appropriate for Menlo Park. The double decker bus will take us to North Bayshore area of Mountain View, Peery Park in Sunnyvale and the Gilead Campus in Foster City to compare varying examples of design, infrastructure, and mobility treatments and options.
“These tours are part of our educational and outreach efforts of the General Plan update. We want to hear from people about their vision of the future of Menlo Park. We also have a survey that community members can complete online: http://www.menlopark.org/connectmenlo.”
