Briefs: Bressler reappointed to Menlo Park Planning Commission

Praising her former colleague's dedication, Vice Mayor Kirsten Keith voted unanimously with the rest of the council to reappoint Vince Bressler to Menlo Park's Planning Commission on April 5.

The commission is next scheduled to meet on Monday, April 18, at 7 p.m. in the Civic Center at 701 Laurel St, when it will consider how the state density bonus law should apply to housing projects in Menlo Park. The law lets developers build more housing units than would otherwise be allowed on a given parcel depending on how much below-market-rate housing they include.

Dogs in clothes to help pets in need

Dogs will walk the runway on Saturday, April 30, as part of PETCO's first annual Spring Fashion Social and Pet Clothing Drive.

The store will collect "gently used" pet supplies such as toys, leashes, and beds to donate to local animal shelters, while visitors get a chance to see the latest pet fashions modeled on four legs. Adoptable pets will also be on hand.

The Menlo Park Unleashed by PETCO store is at 515 El Camino Real, in the same plaza as Safeway. The show runs from 2 to 4 p.m.
