Volunteers sought to help solve Menlo Park’s transportation problems | News – California News

Menlo Park is seeking volunteers for a committee to help develop a transportation master plan, intended to improve travel in the city, whether by motor vehicle, bike, public transit or on foot.

The committee will be made up of two at-large members, two City Council members, three members from local organizations, and one member from each of four city commissions: Complete Streets, Environmental Quality, Parks & Recreation and the Planning Commission.

Members will be appointed by the City Council. Applications for the two at-large positions are due by 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 16. They should be submitted to Jelena Harada, deputy city clerk, by email to jvharada@menlopark.org or mail to the City Clerk’s Office at 701 Laurel St., Menlo Park, CA 94025.

The transportation plan, to be crafted by the Oakland-based transportation consulting firm W-Trans, will establish impact fees on new development to fund transportation projects.

Go to the city’s webpage on the project for more information.
