The Specific Plan is definitely my main project, but I've still got plenty of other ones! You should come on a regular PC night- even "small" projects can touch on a lot of interesting topics. This particular event isn't totally under our City of Menlo Park Planning umbrella because it's more regional/nonprofit-led. Greenbelt Alliance is putting together a good program, regardless!

@Randy I second that emotion. @Thomas I have no doubt. (: I just checked out the agenda for the next PC mtg, and I see what you mean. Re: the I Bar Inc. project. What exactly are "personal services?"
