    MENLO PARK — Two massive pieces of land just steps away from Menlo Park City Hall and the city’s Caltrain station are in line for redevelopment after years of anticipation, presenting a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a city desperate to find space for new housing to meet state-mandated goals. The 17-acre, federally-owned US Geological Survey property on Middlefield Road in Menlo Park is finally going up for sale after the agency announced it would be moving to Moffett Field in Mountain View in 2016, a Government Services Agency spokesperson told The Mercury News. Along with an adjacent 60-acre site owned by SRI International — which the research institute hopes to turn into a mixed-use urban village complete with new offices and housing — the two parcels of land have the potential to accommodate hundreds of new housing units and make a dent on the nearly 3,000 new homes the city must build in the coming years to stave off losing local control of housing development from the state government. For years, the USGS property has been eyed for affordable housing by...

Inouye Internaional Airport on July 2, 2021 in Honolulu, Hawaii.Eugene Tanner | AFP | Getty ImagesNational Transportation Safety Board investigators plan to use sonar imaging on Monday to try to locate a Boeing 737-200 cargo jet that ditched off the coast of Hawaii last week. Transair Flight 810 made an emergency landing in the ocean off the coast of Oahu around 1:30 a.m. local time on Friday. The cargo plane's pilots reported engine trouble shortly after leaving Honolulu. Both of the pilots were rescued. The NTSB said it must first find the exact location of the 46-year-old plane before the cockpit voice and data recorders can be recovered. "Investigators plan to use side scan sonar Monday to survey the debris field, the condition of the airplane and its location, including how far beneath the surface the plane sank," it said in a statement. "That information will be used to determine how and when the recorders could be recovered...

    Marine scientists say they have found what they believe to be as many as 25,000 barrels that possibly contain DDT dumped off the Southern California coast near Catalina Island, where a massive underwater toxic waste site dating back to World War II has long been suspected. The 27,345 "barrel-like" images were captured by researchers at the University of California San Diego's Scripps Institution of Oceanography. They mapped more than 36,000 acres of seafloor between Santa Catalina Island and the Los Angeles coast in a region previously found to contain high levels of the toxic chemical in sediments and in the ecosystem. In this 2011 image provided by the University of California Santa Barbara, a barrel sits on the seafloor near the coast of Catalina Island, Calif.  David Valentine / AP Historical shipping logs show that industrial companies in Southern California used the basin as a dumping ground until 1972, when the Marine Protection, Research and Sanctuaries Act, also known as the Ocean Dumping Act, was enacted. Resting deep in the ocean, the exact location and extent of the dumping...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — A coalition of Hollywood stakeholders are speaking out against a plan to develop two skyscrapers after recent geological studies showed earthquake-causing fault lines running through the proposed site. A letter from the California Geological Survey last week to LA’s planning department said scientists found multiple fault lines capable of causing an earthquake where the development – named the Hollywood Center – is planned. (Illustration courtesy MillenniumHollywood.net) “These studies strongly support the presence of an active southern fault strand entering the eastern Hollywood Center property in the vicinity of the alley at Argyle,” the letter said. The letter also said the U.S. Geological Survey’s own peer-reviewed analysis of the Hollywood Fault zone in the immediate area of the proposed development showed near-surface fault traces of the Hollywood Fault in the same locations. The USGS study showed four fault projections that run through the area, with some going directly through the planned sites. Attorneys for the Stop the Millennium Hollywood Coalition said they believe the most recent environmental reports that developer Millennium Partners submitted to Los Angeles planning...
    State geologists have concluded there is “strong” evidence that an earthquake fault runs along the site of a controversial skyscraper development slated for Hollywood, records obtained by The Times show. A letter from the California Geological Survey to Los Angeles city planners, obtained through a public records act request, raises new questions about the Hollywood Center development. The project calls for 46- and 35-story skyscrapers that flank the famed Capitol Records Tower, along with two buildings for low-income senior residents that would each stand 11 stories tall. “These studies strongly support the presence of an active ... fault strand entering the eastern Hollywood Center property,” the letter said. For years, state scientists have said there’s evidence an earthquake fault slices through a strip of Hollywood. In 2014, state officials mapped out the Hollywood fault — capable of a magnitude 7 earthquake — shown running through the area. But that hasn’t stopped a New York-based developer and Los Angeles city officials from championing a $1-billion plan that would creates Hollywood’s tallest and largest development.

    Advocates pushing for a temporary safe camping site for people experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic believe that a majority of those who live or work in Denver support the proposal. And they have a survey to back up that belief. "There’s broad public support really all across the city, in council districts all across the city," says Cole Chandler, director of the Colorado Village Collaborative, which is spearheading the proposal along with the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado. The two groups surveyed 636 individuals in late April and early May; eight out of ten voiced support for a safe camping site, and over six out of ten expressed strong support for the idea. The survey collected feedback from homeowners, individuals active in neighborhood organizations and business owners, among other people.Related Stories Service Providers Explore New Paths to Safe Camping Site Safe Parking Sites Could Steer Homeless to a Better Future Denver's Urban Camping Sites Were Once Fashionable Destinations "I think it really also shows a change.
