Menlo-Atherton Little League
Ballpark Plans
The Menlo-Atherton Little League proposes to construct certain improvements to the existing Little League baseball diamond in Holbrook-Palmer Park. It proposes a number of improvements to the field and surrounding facilities, ranging from leveling the field, erecting temporary removable outfield fences, and construction of a small electric scoreboard, permanent foul line poles, covered seating and new restrooms that will result in permanent improvements to the area. The cost of such improvements will be paid for by the Menlo-Atherton Little League using only private funds. 

January, 2014
Facility Use Agreement for Menlo-Atherton Little League improvements at Holbrook Palmer Park. Staff presented the Report and asked the Council to approve the business points of the agreement, direct the City Attorney to prepare the Agreement, and authorize the City Manager to execute the Agreement. After discussion and public comment, the Council approved the staff recommendation, with the caveat that there be a “post-season” check-in on how things worked and what needs to change each year and that the facility be constructed in a manner that is consistent with the historic character of facilities in the Park. The detailed business points are articulated within the Staff Report.

March, 2014
The Mayor appointed an Ad Hoc Committee to work with staff on a determination of historic character conformance on the Little League project. (Staff Report)

September, 2014
The final agreement was executed by all parties and M-ALL began working on the final revisions to their submitted plans through the Building Department Plan Check. They paid all permit fees related to processing of their development application. The Town also negotiated a number of site improvements beyond the basic project scope to address pathway issues, facility improvements, planning for future improvements (conduits, etc.), parking lot improvements, and site electrical.

November, 2014
Work began. Special attention is being paid to site coordination, fencing, and continued park safety during construction. All issues raised were thoroughly addressed and satisfied prior to execution of the agreement.

Access to users and user groups in the park is not affected by construction of the Little League.
