Menlo Park CA 94025
Attend the appeal meeting on Wednesday, March 27th @ 6pm at Menlo Park City Council Chambers, 701 Laurel 94025. If we get low attendance, the trees are likely toast. Bring all your tree-loving neighbors and friends.
Evening Agenda at Link at bottom of this page. Public comment period is at beginning. 2 minutes per person; you can also join us in our protest by holding signs in chambers during the meeting.
The Raging Grannies will sing a protest song during the meeting.
**The building structure damage at 1000 El Camino Real was not caused by the trees.
**The land at 1000 El Camino Real is owned by the city and leased to the building owner.
**The building structure repair solution proposed by the building owner will damage the trees and require their removal.
**There are alternative building structure repaire solutions that will not damage the trees, but these solutions are costly.
**The city of Menlo Park estimates the monetary value of the trees at $150,000 – not enough to justfy the more costly solutions.
**The original premise of the tree removal is FALSE:
---False premise point #1: The trees are causing damage to the structure (this staff report confirms that this is not the case)
---False premise point #2: No feasible alternatives to removal exist (alternatives do exist that increase the cost of repairs)
