Tonight: Menlo Park council looks at rec fees, granny units

Tonight the Menlo Park City Council continues talking about how to implement new regulations for secondary, or granny, units, and the conversion of existing units to legal structures.

The council will also consider increasing fees for many of the city's community services, such as child care and gymnastics programs. The issue of how much of a surcharge nonresidents, including people living in unincorporated Menlo Park, should pay is expected to make for a lively discussion tonight.

Also on the agenda: filling two Planning Commission vacancies, two Parks and Recreation Commission vacancies, and one Housing Commission vacancy.

Go to the city's website to review the entire agenda and associated staff reports for tonight's meeting.

The April 29 meeting will be held in council chambers at the Civic Center at 701 Laurel St. It starts with a closed session at 6 p.m. for labor negotiations and a potential sale of 1467 Chilco St. to the Menlo Park Fire Protection District.

The regular meeting follows at 7 p.m., beginning with a study session on a potential project with Alameda County to use solar power at five Menlo Park facilities, including the Arrillaga Family Gymnastics Center and the Onetta Harris Community Center.

The meeting will be streamed live online.
