BADMINTON PLAYERS MAKE ASOM RACKET IN MENLO PARK E T IM E S YOU C A N F I GHT CI T Y H A L L Story by Sandy Brundage | Photos by Michelle Le

hat do you think of when someone says “badminton”? Gawky kids smacking each other with the racquets more often than the shuttlecocks? How about a shuttle flying 200 miles per hour at your head during the last five seconds of an Olympic championship match? Probably not the latter, but some Menlo Park badminton fans want to change that. When they discovered in June that floor plans for the new $11.5-million Arrillaga gym off Alma Street did not include permanent badminton courts, potentially

condemning the sport to obscurity within city limits, they played hard ball. What followed is a study in persistence. Persistence at the keyboard sending e-mails, at the microphone during council meetings, even at early morning tours of a high school gym. And in the end, they triumphed. See BADMINTON, page 23

In 1984, we gave 2-year-old Lizzy Craze a new heart. Twenty-five years later, she’s one of the longest surviving transplant patients - and she’s thriving. Today, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital has one of the nation’s largest pediatric heart transplant programs. Together, we continue to pioneer new treatments that reduce the need for heart biopsies, explore drug therapies that eliminate the need for transplants for many patients, and sustain patients who await transplants.

C O M M U N I T Y BADMINTON continued from page 21

POINT ONE

The city’s resistance to the courts focused on three elements, according to Community Services Director Cherise Brandell: 1) Badminton courts sat unused at Onetta Harris Community Center and the Burgess gym; 2) Surveys demonstrated little interest in badminton; and 3) Badminton lines, painted on

‘It felt like breaking through a wall to get their attention.’ RETIRED BADMINTON JOHN HARGIS

COACH

class athlete, the courts at Burgess, available only on Sunday nights, couldn’t accommodate everyone who wanted to play. Obstacle No. 1 — that the city already had sufficient court capacity — no longer looked insurmountable.

POINT TWO

City staff had estimated that only an average of five people played weekly at the Burgess gym, according to the community services director. “They were basically saying no one plays badminton anyway,” Mr. Elliot said after a series of meetings with city planners and recreational staff. This came as a surprise, since he coaches players at Menlo-Atherton High School, Stanford University, and private clubs. “The arguments they were using, to me, didn’t make any sense. I started to get worried. Really worried.” So the badminton advocates set out to prove the city wrong. After a month of campaigning via letters and public comments, Mr. Hargis showed Councilman Andy Cohen a petition signed by 167 people. Mr. Cohen and colleague Kelly Fergusson decided to support the proposal. The petition carried 240 names by the time it reached the mayor. Obstacle No. 2 — insufficient interest — destroyed.

POINT THREE the gym floor, would hopelessly confuse the floor layout. Retired high school badminton coach John Hargis, backed up by internationally ranked player Seth Elliot, set out to knock down the objections one by one. The most frustrating part, Mr. Hargis said, was the city’s initial lack of response. “It wasn’t a matter of writing my letter and someone saying, ‘Come by my office, and we’ll talk about it,” he reflected. “It was more a matter of silence. It felt like breaking through a wall to get their attention.” The 65-year-old Menlo Park man persisted for one reason. “I’ve been playing badminton since I was 10 years old. It’s one of the few things in life I can point to and say, ‘This is good.’” He scouted the three courts at Onetta Harris and discovered that fixed basketball hoops limited play on two courts, and the city had bought only one badminton net. “The plan was to purchase more as use increased,” Ms. Brandell said. Meanwhile, Mr. Elliot attended council meeting after council meeting to urge officials to add badminton lines to the Arrillaga gym. According to the world-

On Sept. 13, to resolve the question of confusing lines, Ms. Brandell organized a tour of the badminton courts inside one gym at Menlo-Atherton High School, accompanied by the two council members and the sport’s advocates at 7:30 a.m. Turns out the lines did not, in fact, confuse anyone; the finding perhaps bolstered by learning that the company that created the high school’s courts, H.Y. Floor & Gameline Painting, was the same company contracted to work on Arrillaga. Obstacle No. 3 vanished. In retrospect, no one, including the city, knows how city staff concluded the lines would be confusing. “That’s the mystery question. I don’t know if anyone’s ever going to admit making that statement,” Mr. Elliot said. Word came down that afternoon from the man himself, City Manager Glen Rojas. After reviewing everyone’s input, he approved adding six courts at the Arrillaga gym. The cost of painting the lines is “minimal, and can be accommodated in the project budget,” Ms. Brandell said. Community Services will also buy nets. Mr. Hargis estimated the cost as $2,400 to paint six courts, and about $2,500 for nets.

“They probably spent more than that of Cherise’s time trying to tell us no.”

ELEPHANT IN ROOM

Why add the badminton courts to Arrillaga instead of improving the courts already at Belle Haven’s Onetta Harris Community Center? If the city placed six courts there, would that have satisfied the badminton community? Depends on whom you ask. “No way,” said Councilman Andy Cohen, and listed several reasons why. High school students without driver’s licenses would have a hard time getting to the center, he said, and parents don’t want their kids riding bicycles across a U.S. 101 overpass. There may be a little more to it than that. “Not to mention the unspoken, the taboo reason, which is that nobody wants to go to Belle Haven,” Mr. Cohen said. “If they’re in West Menlo, the last place they want to go is all the way over there. It doesn’t have a good reputation. No one wants trouble.” Ms. Brandell said, “They do not want to go to Onetta Harris. I am still unsure of the reasons.” In an e-mail to her, Mr. Hargis described Ms. Brandell’s attempts to sell him on the center as trying “to make the Belle Haven court(s) appear to be a ‘silk purse’ offering to the badminton community, but in reality, it is a one-court ‘sow’s ear’” compared to the potential of Arrillaga. But as far as playing at Onetta goes, he told The Almanac, “We probably would’ve been willing to go there, but there’s a lot of attraction to the state-of-art, centrally located facility being offered.” Mr. Elliot concurred, citing the lack of available hours, reduced staffing, and safety concerns about the basketball posts at the Belle Haven facility.

GAME, SET, MATCH

The badminton fans emphasized their gratitude for the city’s flexibility. Mr. Elliot’s excitement bubbled through his voice as he spoke about what this will mean for the kids he coaches. For his part, Mr. Hargis sounded both appreciative, and also relieved to be able to take a break now from political rabblerousing. “I’m proud to be a Menlo Park resident. Those who were deciding and thought we were a nuisance and we should just go away, really didn’t see what badminton is,” he said. “If people are counting on you to give them a voice, you can’t let the frustrations stop you from trying until you break through.”

NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING AND NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING CITY OF MENLO PARK PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING OF OCTOBER 4, 2010

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Planning Commission of the City of Menlo Park, California, is scheduled to review the following items: PUBLIC HEARING ITEMS Use Permit/Jon Jang/970 Altschul Avenue: Request for a use permit for first-story and second-story additions to an existing nonconforming single-story structure that would exceed 50 percent of the existing floor area, on a substandard lot with regard to lot width in the R-1-S (Single-Family Suburban) zoning district. The proposed modifications would also exceed 50 percent of the value of the existing non-conforming structure. The proposed remodeling and expansion are considered to be equivalent to a new structure. In addition, a use permit is required for excavation (removal of more than 12 inches of dirt) within the required front and side setbacks for landscaping improvements. The construction of the proposed residence would require the removal of two heritage size trees, a 53.7-inch diameter blue gum in fair condition and a 22.2-inch diameter Monterey pine in poor condition. Use Permit/Menlo Park Fire Protection District/444 El Camino Real: Request for a use permit to use the subject site (former car dealership) as a training facility, mainly for a driving course and low impact team search drills. The existing buildings would also be used for temporary storage of a few vehicles. No outside storage is proposed except during training sessions. The proposal is for a limited two-year term. Planned Development Permit Extension and Below Market Rate Housing Agreement Amendment/Beltramo’s Investment Co. Inc./1452 &1460 El Camino Real and 1457 & 1473 San Antonio Street: Request for the following: 1) a two-year extension (until August 1, 2012) of a Planned Development (PD) Permit for the construction of a new 26,800-square-foot, twostory commercial building with at-grade and subterranean parking and 16 two-story townhomes with partially submerged parking and 2) an amendment to the approved Below Market Rate (BMR) Housing Agreement to allow for a combination of one on-site BMR unit, payment of in-lieu fees, and profit sharing of revenues above a projected sales price instead of the provision to provide three on-site BMR units, 3) modifications to the vesting tentative map for consistency with the proposed BMR Agreement, and 4) an amendment to the approved PD Permit to allow for the provision of a bond in lieu of demolishing structures prior to recordation of the final map. The rezoning from C-4 (General Commercial, Applicable to El Camino Real) to P-D (Planned Development), the PD Permit, Vesting Tentative Map, and BMR Housing Agreement were previously approved by the City Council in August 2006 and subsequently extended until August 1, 2010. Use Permit Extension/Samuel L. Wright, III/885 Oak Grove Avenue: Request for an extension of a use permit originally granted in 1989 and extended in 1995, 2000, and 2005 for non-retail uses to locate on the ground floor of a building located in the C-3 (Central Commercial) zoning district. The proposed extension would be permanent and would continue to include payment of a yearly sales tax in-lieu contribution for the ground-floor square footage. NOTICE IS HEREBY FURTHER GIVEN that said Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on public hearing items in the Council Chambers of the City of Menlo Park, located at 701 Laurel Street, Menlo Park, on Monday, October 4, 2010, 7:00 p.m. or as near as possible thereafter, at which time and place interested persons may appear and be heard thereon. If you challenge this item in court, you may be limited to raising only those issues you or someone else raised at the public hearing described in this notice, or in written correspondence delivered to the City of Menlo Park at, or prior to, the public hearing.
