We Are Menlo Park Families and Residents
SaveMenlo is made up of residents who believe in a walkable and livable Menlo Park. There are nearly six hundred folks involved. We are your neighbors, we bike the Tour de Menlo, we go swimming at Burgess, and our kids probably have been in the same class as yours.
Some of us have lived here for over 50 years and are now retired, and some of us have recently moved in with our young families. We're young, old, and somewhere in the middle.
We are concerned about affect of mega office development - that was not part of the public vision.
We want the city to enforce the public vision created 5 years ago for reasonable, balanced development that will protect the high quality of life and safety for children and families in Menlo Park.
