Pop-up park location

Popup parks are a really interesting idea for downtown Menlo Park. One question: why was the half-block of Chestnut Street chosen as the pilot location?

Chestnut Street / Santa Cruz Avenue is one of the very few 4-way stops on Santa Cruz Avenue, so this intersection is an easy and safe place for cars to turn onto Santa Cruz — the only place between Left Bank and Peet’s where it’s easy to do. When I walked through the intersection yesterday, cars were rolling right through the stop signs because cross traffic was no longer a consideration. Maybe the pop-up pilot project could be on one of the streets with an existing 2-way stop, instead. Thanks for considering.
