Parking plaza may reopen temporarily before Christmas

Closed for several months, the parking plaza at Oak Grove and Chestnut Street in Menlo Park may reopen temporarily before Christmas.

City staff said the lot was closed for renovation, but the repairs are almost complete. They planned to reopen the lot at the beginning of this week.

"However, the landscaping and finishing touches won't quite be done yet," said Chip Taylor, interim public works director. "That portion of the work will continue after the holiday season, which may involve some additional closures to complete."

The temporary reopening may come as welcome news to last-minute holiday shoppers, who have faced a shortage of parking in downtown Menlo since the lot closed in the fall.
