The 2019 season of Menlo Park’s Youth Volleyball League concluded the week of November 4, with a final series of 6-8 grade championship games before an enthusiastic crowd of families, classmates and friends

Limited front counter services on Thursday, Nov. 21

Posted on November 11, 2019 at 7:48 pm by Clay Curtin

The City is currently upgrading the software that processes building, planning, encroachment and heritage tree removal permits. In order to start the multiday data conversion phase, the City Hall front counter will not be able to accept, edit or issue any permits Thursday, November 21.

The counter will be open for water bill and business license payments, but customers are otherwise encouraged to reference the Building, Planning, Engineering and Heritage Tree webpages for information and forms, and/or visit the counter on another day for direct services.

In addition, please note that Building permit statuses and descriptions are always available online at the Search for a Permit page.

The new Accela permitting software will include capabilities for online applications, workflow consistency improvements, and mobile access for inspectors and other field staff, and is a top priority of the Information Technology Master Plan.
