Downtown plan at councilOn Tuesday, Sept. 13, the Menlo Park City Council returns to contemplate a subject near and dear to residents' hearts, judging by the amount of email sent to the council during the past week — the downtown/El Camino Real specific plan.
Lest anyone think the council has nothing better to do, also on the agenda is a public input session on the selection of a new city manager at 6 p.m. and, an hour later during the regular meeting, a debate on whether the city should pay the state $3.5 million to keep its redevelopment agency open.
The regular meeting starts at 7 p.m. in council chambers at the Civic Center at 701 Laurel St.
The Menlo Park Chamber of Commerce is holding its September mixer at Left Bank, at 635 Santa Cruz Ave., on Wednesday, Sept. 14. The event runs from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and includes a drawing for prizes donated by Chamber members.
