Re: Request for Written Denial of Time Extension

Ms Chow,

Thank you for your response. Please allow me to clarify ETB EPA's request for a 15 day extension. Our main concern and request pertained to the Facebook Expansion Project EIR. As you know, the CIty of Menlo Park allowed that deadline to remain firm and it ended yesterday, July 11, 2016.

Please recall that our principal concern and most salient argument focused on Menlo Park's failure to acknowledge, reproduce, and distribute our substantive Facebook Expansion Project Notice of Preparation comments submitted to Menlo Park almost a year ago. We brought this serious omission to your attention and to the attention of your Council members in our letter of July 5, 2016. Unfortunately, no respondents to the FB EIR had an opportunity to review our NOP comments and concerns.

We make it abundantly clear that an extension of the ConnectMenlo DEIR comment deadline does not address the significant and material omission of our letter from the Facebook Project record. This redress is too little and comes too late for us. It almost adds insult to injury by allowing Menlo Park to proclaim that is took note of our concerns, yet your action to extend the ConnectMenlo DEIR deadline does nothing to redress our grievances regarding the Facebook project. Our request was essential ignored.

In closing we hope you decide to extend the deadline for ConnectMenlo so that others in the community may have an opportunity to plow through the combined 10,000 pages of documents with slightly more time.

Best,
