Menlo Park's libraries

Dear City Council Members:

I believe that, BEFORE Menlo Park commits to a new Civic Center library and some $30 million in outlay (plus another $30 million or so in interest costs assuming bonds are issued to pay the City's share), Menlo Park residents should be allowed a formal vote on 1) the need for a whole new library, 2) the desirability of adding housing in the Civic Center, 3) the need for a whole new City Council Chamber/multi-purpose room in the library, and 4) the need for other meeting rooms in addition to those in the still new Recreation Center. Since there appears to now be something in this for everyone––additional staff, expanded budget and financial authority for the City Manager, lots of activity for outside consultants and what some might consider token paint, carpet, furniture and adult reading materials for the Belle Haven library––a public vote should not be too much to ask for.
