Save Menlo Park is a group of neighbors trying to protect Menlo Park from irrational, big-box, over-development. We are for smart development that maintains a mix of low-traffic residential and retail space, increasing walking and biking connections between east and west Menlo Park, while bringing in tax revenues and enhancing the village character of Menlo Park.
