Document Description
The El Camino Real/Downtown Specific Plan will establish a framework for private and public improvements on El Camino Real and in Downtown Menlo Park for the next several decades. The plan's focus is on the character and density of private infill development, the character and extent of enhanced public spaces, and circulation and connectivity improvements. It will include a strategy for implementation of public realm and other infrastructure improvements. The overall intent of the El Camino Real/Downtown Specific Plan is to enhance community life, character and vitality through mixed use infill projects sensitive to the small-town character of Menlo Park, an expanded public realm and improved connections across El Camino Real. The Specific Plan is the result of an extensive community engagement process, and uses as its basis the El Camino Real/Downtown Vision Plan, which was unanimously accepted by the City Council on July 15, 2008. The release of the Draft Specific Plan is currently targeted for early Spring 2010.
