Asbestos Exposure in Menlo Park, CA

Menlo Park, a Tree City USA community, is known as a quiet yet vibrant city of tree-lined neighborhoods. Situated on “The Peninsula”, Menlo Park is located between San Francisco and Oakland on the North and San Jose on the South in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. The city occupies a total area of 17.4 square miles in San Mateo County and is home to more than 32,000 residents, according to the 2010 United States Census.

Menlo Park was originally incorporated in 1874 as the second city in San Mateo County; however, it was unincorporated two years later. During these early days, Menlo Park manufactured gas for its own heating and lighting use and sold some to neighboring communities. Old Menlo consisted mostly of a few general merchandise stores, two or three blacksmith shops, a couple of livery stables, six or eight saloons, and three hotels. The rural flavor of the community remained until the first World War, when, Menlo Park was quickly populated by 43,000 soldiers in training at Camp Fremont, with the Base Hospital and other facilities on Willow Road where the Veterans Administration Medical Center now stands. Menlo Park was reincorporated in November 1927. Currently, much of Menlo Park's economy is focused around companies consisting of venture capital, private equity, financial services, law firms, and other professional service companies. Geron, Robert Half International, Exponent and SRI International are some of the companies based in Menlo Park. Top employers, as of 2010, include City of Menlo Park, Randtron Systems, Pacific Biosciences, Tyco Electronics, and Oracle America.
