Honorable Mayor and Council Members,

In preparation for the discussion of Agenda Item # F.2 entitled “Adopt the
2014 City Council Goals (Staff Report #14-034) under Regular Business for
the City Council meeting scheduled for Tuesday, February 25, 2014, I’d like
to offer for your candid consideration a TEN POINT PROGRAM. These items
address a number of items important in preserving and protecting the quality
of life in Menlo Park.


“Ask not what your CITY can do for you, ask what YOU can do for your City.”
1. Establish a volunteer coordinator position to encourage citizen
involvement within the city.
2. Establish a grant writer position in order to take advantage of
State, Regional and Federal funds.
3. Reactivate the Las Pulgas Advisory Committee that will show a
commitment to enhancing the M-2 and related areas.
4. Provide for a community workshop to discuss quality of life issues
important to the community.
5. Appoint seven dedicated citizens to the Menlo Park Art Commission
to provide direction and focus on important cultural programs, such as
theatre, art, dance, song, sculpture, poetry, etc., as nearly all cities,
counties and states do in California and across the nation. .
6. Encourage a gifting program to the city, placing a high value on
recognition, self-esteem and benefits to the community. For the donor, this
may help as an income tax deduction and with estate planning.
7. Whenever possible, place programs for children as a priority, as
children are our hope for the future.
8. Consider an active coordinator for current Menlo Park neighborhood
organizations providing for enhanced communication for social, disaster
preparedness and other community needs.
9. Expedite funding for various public works projects in and around
town to insure a safe and appropriate infra-structure, including safe routes
to school..
10. Establish a Community Services Foundation, similar to the program
offered by the City of San Carlos. Many parks and other areas have been
greatly improved as a result of this outstanding program.
Thank you for your consideration.
