Yesterday's City Planning Advisory Agency public hearing for the Menlo Property was continued for further environmental review of impacts on air quality, biological resources and trail issues.

Sound familiar? We recently went through this with the Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract subdivision. At least this time, the Advisory Agency recognized what was missing before making a decision.

Note to developers: we take greenfield development seriously in a neighborhood overburdened by freeways.
