Honorable Mayor and Council Members:
Are you looking for answers to complex issues?  If so, one source of useful information may be the website for the MENLO PARK HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION (MPHA).  Since it's inception, the website has drawn over 200,000 viewers.  Why is this?  It may be due to the information provided that the reader finds useful.  
The Menlo Park Historical Association BEGAN IN 1971, nearly 50 years ago, During that time, its archives have included a volumous amount of information, from a variety of sources, with new information being offered by long time residents nearly on a daily basis. 
Included in their files are ORAL HISTORIES, an invaluable and nearly priceless source of first hand information. Why would you find this helpful? Frankly, history has a way of repeating itself. Also, it's important to learn mistakes of the past from others, as there isn't enough time for each of us to make them all for ourselves. With an appreciation for history, providing guidance, can help make better decisions going forward.
Shown on the website are BUSINESSES LOCATED IN MENLO PARK for over  50 YEARS.  Homes built over 100 years ago are shown. Information about the city's founders are there. Historical Landmarks are listed. Over 1,000 photos of times long past can be accessed online. 
Membership is only TWENTY DOLLARS (20.00) per year for individuals, which helps to support the Association's efforts. Of particular interest may be their quarterly NEWSLETTER, known as the GATEPOST.  Archives are also available online.
In addition, BOOKS AND PUBLICATIONS are available, such as the STREETS OF MENLO PARK, the BEYOND THE GATES book, a WALKING TOUR booklet and much, much more. A new book entitled MENLO: MEMORIES AND FORKLORE, published last month, with 224 pages, with many, many photographs will soon be available. 
We are here to SERVE THE COMMUNITY, including City of Menlo Park staff, elected officials, citizens and others worldwide with an interest in ALL THINGS MENLO PARK !
