Over the next 18 months, the City of Menlo Park will be focused on updating its Housing Element and Safety Element, and the preparation of an Environmental Justice Element. The City of Menlo Park is seeking residents to serve on the newly created Housing Element Community Engagement and Outreach Committee (CEOC). The CEOC’s overall purpose is to assist the City in ensuring a broad and inclusive community outreach and engagement process. The 10-member advisory committee will be integral in helping guide and providing feedback on the types and frequency of activities/events/meetings and the strategies and methods for communicating with the various stakeholders in the community. The committee would not provide policy guidance, though members are welcome to participate in planned events and meetings as individuals.
Appointments are expected to be made by the City Council no later than Tuesday, May 25, and the first meeting is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, May 27, from 6-8 p.m.
