On December 16, 2019, Facebook submitted its proposal for exploring the funding and development of a new multigenerational facility to incorporate the current Onetta Harris Community Center, Menlo Park Senior Center, Belle Haven Youth Center (child care), Belle Haven Pool and branch library.
On January 12, 2021, the City Council approved the architectural control, use permit, funding and improvements agreement for the Menlo Park Community Campus project located at 100-110 Terminal Avenue. The City Council requested further review of several design elements of the proposed pool area. Those items were discussed on January 26, and February 1. The City Council approved the pool design elements on February 1.
Menlo Park Community Campus proceeds with building demolition
UPDATE (Week of Sept. 13): Heavy demolition will be starting. You may see jackhammering and increased truck traffic to the site. Work will only take place during approved work hours and access to Kelly Field and Beechwood School will be maintained.
August 10, 2021 to October 2021: Demolition of the buildings will begin, which will have noise, vibratory and dust impacts to the surrounding area. Noise will comply with the City of Menlo Park noise ordinance for construction projects and dust will be mitigated by using the appropriate amount of water to spray active work areas.
