  • 933 Crane St Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA - Menlo Park
    There is a very narrow/sharp speed bump on Crane St, between Menlo Ave and Live Oak Ave. This street is an official city bike route, and this bump is dangerous for bicycles, which usually don't have any shock absorbers and are thrown several inches into the air. Please either remove this speed bump, add a gap for bicycles, or replace it with a wider/smoother one (as on Alma St.). Thank you.
  • 869 Santa Cruz Ave Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA - Menlo Park
    10 carts. This person's things grow each month. It forces pedestrians to make way around it. The public bench has a used Coke 2 liter bottle with nobody around. If the town permits sidewalk storage to continue, others will do the same and the carts will multiply. It does not seem right for a private individual to use public sidewalk for storage, certainly not for a period of days, much less weeks, months. The carts are likely stolen property, which makes everyone uncomfortable. Is there code enforcement around this issue?
  • 1600 Marsh Road Menlo Park, California - Menlo Park
    The 2 new signs--1 at entry and 1 past 1st paved parking area--are in a type size too small to be read from a moving car. I would have to park at the park entry and get out and walk over to read all the "Do Not's". I suspect nobody bothers to pause long enough or close enough to read the rules. Please mke the rules easy to read from a 6+ foot distance and through a windshield. Thank you.

    1600 Marsh Road Menlo Park, California - Menlo Park

    A man was feeding skunks in violation of California code §251.1 at 6:00 AM, September 26, 2018.

    I have seen piles of food and feeding skunks, cats, and fox many times along the outer circuit of the park.The skunk population has either grown over the last two years or they are all congregating along the outer road in the mornings.

    I asked the man to stop but he claimed it was not illegal and would cease if there were a sign to indicate that it is not allowed.

  • Menlo Park Presbyterian Church Johnson Street, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States of America - Menlo Park
    Every Sunday churchgoers Park in the bike lane between University and Arbor on Santa Cruz. It forces dangerous swerving for bike riders including one very near accident for one of my kids.
  • 1155 Merrill St Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA - Menlo Park
    Construction traffic is blocking both lanes of through traffic on Merrill Street. Trucks are parked on the road without a driver to move the trucks when needed. No traffic coordinator is visible and this is a huge safety hazard. Just now a large dump truck parked in the middle of the road with the other half taken up with a huge pile of asphalt. The cars couldn't go through and the truck wouldn't move so the cars had to back out of the way. This is a huge safety hazard. Driveways into the residential condos are routinely blocked.

    Menlo Gift Bazaar Downtown Menlo Park, Crane Street, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States of America - Menlo Park
    Several red colored bricks are loose resulting in a significant tripping hazard. They are located on the corner of Santa Cruz Avenue and Crane Street, near the Stephen Miller Gallery retail store.
  • 1130-1140 Chestnut St Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA - Menlo Park
    Four waste carts wrapped with plastic are located under the tree in a median on the Chesnut side of Parking Plaza one. These carts have been in Parking Plaza one for a couple of weeks and Recology is aware, however they will not remove these carts because they cannot see what is inside/determine if it is a hazardous material. Please investigate so appropriate removal plans can be made.
  • 1046 Ringwood Ave Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA - Menlo Park

    There are numerous cars that are (1) using the Willow Road West lanes of the Willow Road exit ramp from 101 North to go East on Willow Road (thereby blocking all traffic in the lanes designated for traffic going West on Willow Road); and (2) using one of the two lanes designated for a left turn ONLY onto Willow Road to make a right turn onto Willow Road (thereby blocking one of the two lanes designated for traffic going West on Willow Road). I see this every day, numerous cars every day. It significantly impedes the progress of cars going West on Willow Road because cars intending to go East on Willow Road are misusing and abusing the lanes designated for cars going West on Willow Road. Not only is it causing traffic jams, such maneuvers are in violation of the traffic signs. Please see if you can enforce the lane designations and penalize all those cars (including buses) that are causing all these problems.

    Thank you.
