Posted on May 28, 2016 at 11:02 pm by Clay Curtin

On May 26, the Planning Division released the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the Facebook Campus Expansion project, located at 301-309 Constitution Drive. The City plans for a series of public meetings during the review and comment period. The first public outreach meeting is Wednesday, June 1, at 7 p.m. at the Senior Center. The meeting provides community members information on the project, the documents available for review, the future meeting schedule and the process to submit comments. Facebook will also make a presentation on the project, which includes the demolition of the existing buildings and the construction of two new office buildings encompassing approximately 962,400 square feet. The project also includes a potential 200-room limited service hotel, publicly accessible open space and a new pedestrian/bicycle bridge over Bayfront Expressway to provide a more direct connection from the campus and the Belle Haven neighborhood to the Bay Trail. 

The Draft EIR can be reviewed on the Facebook Campus Expansion project page, or in person at the Menlo Park Library or Community Development Department at City Hall. The review period is May 26-July 11. Written comments should be submitted to Senior Planner Kyle Perata.
