Re-imagining Santa Cruz Ave

Hi Lee,

I am an apartment landlord in Menlo Park. I agree with you about Santa Cruz
Avenue. I have thought for years that a mix of apartments and condos above
the retail with a mix of deeded and public parking behind on several levels
where the ground level parking is now would be a great way to revitalize the
downtown area. Air rights could be sold to prospective developers above the
retail and public parking.

Re-imagining Santa Cruz Ave

Happy New Year Fellow Residents,

Is 2015 the year to Re-Imagine Santa Cruz Ave? Should the City Council be
putting the issue on this year’s priority list?


I Imagine a Santa Cruz Ave that has 2 and 3-story buildings with apartments
above and trendy retail stores and restaurants below. Trendy furniture,
trendy home décor items, trendy cook ware, and trendy more, in addition to
the few great stores there now. How about a children’s clothing store to
complement Cheeky Monkey?


Mountain View, Burlingame, San Mateo, have recreated themselves and Menlo
Park can, too. Los Altos which has a population identical in size to ours is
one happening place (and does support the Build it Again with Bricks store
that we unfortunately lost).


But first we have to buy into a dream, and then take action to facilitate


Are you up for this idea? What do you Imagine for Menlo? And should the City
Council provide a venue for us to refine the dream?


Thanks, and please let me — and the City Council know.
