Bing Concert Hall Opens at Stanford
Opening on January 11, 2013, the Bing Concert Hall exemplifies the seamless integration of architecture, acoustics and technology with the goal of transforming the practice, study and experience of the performing arts at Stanford. Home to Stanford Live and the University's Music Department and providing a state-of-the-art venue for visiting performers and student artists, the building integrates performance and curriculum for students while engaging the greater Bay Area community. The program - the central element of which is an 842-seat vineyard style concert hall - includes a studio/rehearsal hall, artists' suites, a music library, instrument storage rooms designed to double as practice rooms, an artists' lounge and generous public amenities. Upcoming concert and ticket information can be found here [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001kJPnT1IFwYPj2niUh9x7CtBSY5hjS5fYLj6l4rA9JUP9-5ZX7kER_0cMbHy08iMO_OOKxaJmV4PgFkJ8GyX4VCC2-NlnIkHOdZf6z5QYNl5a2t3yNQwoyriIlDD32phA4TB11A_gHrgdwWSvLBoHEGJfR3bh_LI8].

CalChamber Issues List of New Laws Impacting Employers The California Chamber of Commerce has issued an updated list of new laws that will impact California employers. The list includes recent changes to the pregnancy  disability regulations and the disability discrimination and accommodation regulations. Other significant changes for 2013 include anti-discrimination protections, employee access to personnel records and employer access to personal social media accounts. Some changes relate specifically to certain industries including temporary services employers. Unless specified, the list of new legislation went into effect January 1, 2013. The entire list is available here [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001kJPnT1IFwYMbKtOpdETtzHov_PsT_P2tPROUvjeEhvm9i3iyOvxTTiL89KEHtplKC1Oyim-sR851gFhhO5mAPKaENSLngDVzBt8kWr2OE7pGA9-D2r-37NjJKNSw-rGHnKjIn5l77VZdNAXRwm1jFof0xih3AfIShlvo53qHGZS1Fwm3m1beNpwBRjQAiI670QdWJpDHSChhx-IBWC1zAPopQt_P7auuldspvALaqCrMHeES3lZ_6d0y6hXkz-rmfeFWoDQIw7NJxkUuCGaA3LZ0Yi0vP9_78suxcAEJj-q8v3bpmAbqEOuMZNmWy9Jb5jUcOH6taSsv3UrNluDmuM5aJB_WcMaE2u4p5-Ex11uhRzKqlUdahUlujHFJHX6o-V9A2Sgpu2qCOh99g7M24qiQuLZKHfTbxAfHNFCGo1YypcY45K3PCLeduVUHmTIo].

City Requests Input on Downtown Projects Santa Cruz Avenue Irrigation Replacement Project On October 9, 2012, the City Council rejected a bid for the Santa Cruz Avenue Irrigation Replacement Project as being too costly. The price was inflated by the cost of doing the work at night, so the new proposal allows the contractor to work during the day, provided they don't close off traffic in either direction or close off more than one block of parking in one direction at any time. Feedback is requested from business and property owners regarding the construction proposal. Staff would like to go out to bid again in January 2013 with proposed construction in Spring, weather permitting.
El Camino Real Trees Project
The City is finalizing plans for the fourth phase of the El Camino Trees Project, which will install London Planetrees in the sidewalks and median islands on El Camino Real from Santa Cruz Avenue to Middle Avenue. This will involve removing  some of the Crepe Myrtle trees in the median islands and replacing them with the larger London Planetrees. The project is tentatively going to bid in February 2013 with construction in spring 2013. Business owners will be contacted individually about trees on the sidewalk outside their storefront. Questions and comments should be sent to Ruben Niņo, Assistant Public Works Director, City of Menlo Park at rnino_at_domain_name_was_removed

January Tax Rate Increases
Beginning January 1, 2013, California saw a tax rate increase. Due to voter approval of Proposition 30, the statewide base sales and use tax rate increased one quarter of one percent (0.25%) on January 1, 2013. The higher tax rate will apply for four years - January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2016.
