Update on Middle Avenue Complete Street Pilot from Mayor Betsy Nash

by Linda Hubbard on October 14, 2022

Emails Menlo Park Mayor Betsy Nash:

“The Middle Avenue Complete Street project returns to the City Council on Tuesday 10/18.  The staff report outlines the pilot project and proposes an implementation schedule.  ‘This schedule includes additional outreach through Complete Streets Commission (CSC), City Council, and project-specific meetings, and substantial notification to Middle Avenue residents and stakeholders about potential parking removal. The pilot has been designed to launch during the summer months, when traffic volumes are somewhat lower, providing an opportunity for staff to make adjustments before the start of school in the fall.’

“I plan to be at Nealon Park on Saturday from 10-11am and at Lyle Park on Sunday from 2-3pm.  I welcome you stopping by.”

Staff report for pilot project:
G1. Adopt a resolution authorizing installation of no parking zones on both sides of Middle Avenue, installation of an all-way stop at Middle Avenue and San Mateo Drive, replacement of an all-way stop at Middle Avenue and University Drive with a roundabout with yield control, and temporary closure of Blake Street at Middle Avenue (Staff Report #22-198-CC

As a senior who has just traded in my Tesla for an electric tricycle I applaud the efforts of the staff and Council to make Menlo Park a safer and more friendly place to bike.

One piece of low hanging fruit in this effort would be to convert some near the front door grocery store car parking spots into bicycles parking with posts to lock the bikes to.

We applaud the idea of making Menlo Park a safer place. Unfortunately apartment residents located on Middle Avenue need the ability to park in front of their places of residence. As a representative of the whole of Menlo Park it would be shame to disregard the needs of these people in favor of proposed safety measures that aren’t supported by publicly posted data showing a need for change.
