Menlo Park Acts to Address Public Health Concerns
With the evolving situation surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), city leaders understand and take seriously the concerns of our community members as we continue to plan and take proactive steps to address this public health emergency. 

Public health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) still believe that the public’s risk of exposure in our area is relatively low.

The City of Menlo Park is coordinating with our public health officials, local and regional agencies, and community based organizations. Over the past week, City staff participated in daily coordination calls with other San Mateo County cities and the San Mateo County Emergency Operations Center, as well as other local and regional partners. This provides us a broad understanding and perspective of the ongoing regional response.

Community Invited to Police Strategic Planning Meetings
Menlo Park’s police department prides itself on providing our community with innovative solutions and best practices in the delivery of our law enforcement and related services. The department is embarking on a strategic plan initiative, which will be the roadmap in our continuous quest for a collaborative, transparent and trusting relationship with the many facets of the community we serve. 

The strategic plan initiative will involve both internal and external stakeholder input. We will be hosting three facilitated stakeholder meetings for the public to attend and contribute their thoughts and priorities for the future direction of the police department. The date and location for the next meeting is: 

Saturday, March 21, 10 to 11:30 am
La Entrada Middle School, 2200 Sharon Road
