Housing survey deadline extended to September 6

The City of Menlo Park has extended the deadline for the Housing Element Update community survey until September 6. 

Every eight years, California cities are required to update their Housing Element to plan for much needed new housing. Based on State requirements for housing in the Bay Area, Menlo Park is required to plan for over 3,000 new housing units between 2023 and 2031. We will also be updating the Safety Element and creating a new Environmental Justice Element.

We need your help to identify community values and priorities for this major planning effort.

This survey is the first step in an extensive community engagement process. Your participation will be used to:

  • Gain a better understanding of community values and priorities.
  • Create a foundation for future conversations about possible solutions and policy changes, which will be discussed further at community meetings in the coming months.
  • Enter you into a drawing to win one of twelve $25 gift cards to local businesses.

You can find additional information and subscribe to the Housing Element project email updates on the city website at
