Menlo Park City Council

Mayor Ray Mueller invites community members to the annual State of the City event on Tuesday, November 19, 2019 at 5:30 pm in the Menlo Park City Council Chambers located at 701 Laurel Street. The event is free and open to the public and will include a presentation by the Mayor, followed by a reception and light refreshments.

Each year, the Mayor hosts a State of the City event at a venue of his or her choosing. In years past, the event has been held at a local hotel or other private venue in part to showcase Menlo Park’s vibrant business community. This year, Mayor Mueller requested a brief event in the City Council Chambers and directed that the money that would otherwise have been spent at a private venue instead be used to fund the creation of a youth advisory committee.

Following the State of the City event, the City Council will convene their scheduled regular and special business meetings at 6:15 p.m. Community members are welcome and encouraged to attend.
