budget priorities

Honorable council members,

When you meet next week to receive the city managers budget, please consider the following potential projects:

- under-grounding utilities

- a pedestrian bridge over El Camino

- modern transit (perhaps SkyTran) from Sand Hill to Sequoia Station

- a modest downtown parking structure

- improving traffic flow while protecting neighborhoods

- paying down employee pension and healthcare deficits

All of these are major budget items, most have been considered for years yet were not initiated. We have a strong local economy and should be setting aside funds for investment in the public works we know we need - but if the city doesn't set aside funds when we can, we never will.

Please don't kick the cans down the road. The quality of Menlo Park life depends on your leadership today.
