Menlo Spark Comments on Menlo Park General Plan EIR

From: domainremoved <Diane>

Dear Deanna,
Please find our comments on the Draft EIR for the ConnectMenlo General Plan.

The Draft EIR shows that ConnectMenlo can be a win-win for the environment, livability, convenience, transit, and our economy. We support the Plan including the proposed mitigations; and recommend several additional measures for Greenhouse Gases, Transportation, and Air Quality.

  * In order to ensure that Menlo Park stays on track to meet its climate goals in 2020 and beyond, additional specific mitigation measures should be evaluated in the Final EIR.
  * The Final EIR should increase the proposed trip reduction requirement of 20% to 40% or higher over time as transportation alternatives increase.
  * The City should ensure ample site-specific mitigation for all new developments to prevent significant impacts to air quality and public health.
Please see the attached comments for further details. Thank you for the opportunity to comment.
Diane Bailey
