NOW -- The evaluation of the traffic calming project is currently underway.

Sept 29-Oct 3 -- Traffic and speed counts will begin near the end of September at about 40 locations in and surrounding the DTN neighborhood, in the Lytton neighborhood and in the Willows neighborhood in Menlo Park (baseline counts were made in February 2003 at these same locations).

Input has been requested from the Utilities, Public Works, Fire and Police Departments as well as PASCO and the Postal Service This information will first be presented at a city-sponsored neighborhood meeting in early November

Nov 6 (tentative) at 7 PM at Avenidas.-- The city-sponsored neighborhood meeting

City staff will mail a meeting notice to all residents, businesses and property owners in the areas bounded by (and including both sides of) Alma, Lytton and Middlefield. Also the neighborhood east of Middlefield bounded by Middlefield, University and Chaucer.

These are the most likely boundaries of the mailing area, but they are subject to possible adjustment.

Anyone else is welcome to attend the meeting.

It is not necessary to attend the meeting to obtain the evaluation information.

In November, -- the same area will receive a packet containing all the evaluation data from the project, along with descriptions of any proposed modifications to the project and/or an alternative plan.

A survey postcard will be included in the packet on which residents and owners will be able to indicate their opinion of the various options.

Residents should be on the lookout for this mailing and plan to read the material carefully!

The survey is the best way for City staff and decision-makers to get a comprehensive view of what all the residents of the area think of the project. We hope to put this information on the City's Downtown North web site.

The Transportation Division staff report on this project, including the survey results, will be available in early December. Residents will be able to pick up a copy at a convenient location(s) in the neighborhood or at City Hall.

December 17 at 6:00 PM -- The first public hearing on the project--Planning and Transportation Commission--has been scheduled tentatively for Wednesday, December 17 at 6:00 PM. The same mailing area will receive a postcard notice of the meeting about two weeks in advance. This evaluation schedule is tentative and could change if unforseen problems arise.
