Is it time for the City of Menlo Park to work on a drainage solution here??? It's been bad for years now.

It's been this bad for at least the last 20 years. Is this the City's responsibility or Caltrain?

This is a perfect example of why we should elevade the tracks, creating an open Plaza at ground level.

The tracks were nowhere near flooded. Those pictures are of the parking lot.

Raising the tracks would have no impact on the flooding shown in the pictures. You'd still have a flooded parking lot.
