San Mateo County to hold hearings on trails

After twice rejecting Stanford’s bid to build a path connecting Menlo Park and Portola Valley trail systems, San Mateo County will attempt to gauge public opinion on the issue in the coming months. The trail project is part of the University’s efforts to meet the terms of its General Use Permit agreement with Santa Clara County, which allows Stanford to construct five million square feet of buildings over a 10-year period.
