Off The Grid Expands Into Menlo Park
Despite protests by about 20 downtown business owners and patrons prior to the Planning Commission’s approval of a permit for the event, no one filed to appeal the decision by the Jan. 29 deadline, according to city staff.
Off the Grid, based in San Francisco, started organizing food truck events nearly four years ago. It now hosts gatherings in 25 Bay Area locations, including the Belmont and Burlingame Caltrain stations.
The Menlo Park event will use the corner of the train station parking lot near the intersection of Merrill Street and Ravenswood Avenue and close to the West Bay Model Railroad building. Signs will ban parking within that section of the lot from 3:30 to 10 p.m. on Wednesdays.
Food will be served for three to four hours, starting at 5 p.m., with live music, chairs and lighting provided along with a portable toilet.
