As part of the ongoing work being done at the VA property on Willow Road
in Menlo Park, they are creating a recreational area that will require
additional roads and parking lots. Unfortunately, those plans including
cutting down more than a dozen huge, old-growth oaks and heritage trees
to do so. Happening in the next few days or so.

This is not for buildings -- it's for recreation. The property abuts
Menlo Oaks and residents along Berkeley will certainly be impacted by
this. The VA has not included the City of Menlo Park or the County of
San Mateo in their planning decisions. Oaks are indigenous to our area,
drought resistant and provide shade along with filtering particulates
out of the air which is very important in a location so close to 101.
Please let the VA and the City of Menlo Park know you object. Contact

Planning & Development,
