Thank you for creating a place for people in our downtown business district

Hello Council Members-

I wanted to THANK YOU for installing the paseo in downtown Menlo Park. Every time I'm in our downtown business district I see people of all ages enjoying the space. It's so wonderful to have this place for people to sit and enjoy our beautiful climate, family-oriented city, various activities and each other.

This "experiment is scheduled to end September 30, but I encourage you to make this 'place for people to gather' a permanent installation. For some ideas on low cost, effective and attractive options here is an example plaza that was just done in NYC. Note that no coverings of any kind were done on the street.

This kind of public space is such a fun and creative way to re-imagine our downtown, use existing infrastructure to serve everyone and connect our community in a positive way. I love it and would like to see more projects/experiments like this!

Respectfully-
Cindy Welton
Vice Chair, Menlo Park Bicycle Commission

PS - The big STOP signs are great! I hope you make them permanent, too.
