Please support the general plan update!

Dear Menlo Park City Council,

My name is Rick Malins and I work at Facebook (1 Hacker Way) in Menlo Park.
I’m writing in support of the general plan update allowing 4,500 new
housing units in the area. I urge the City Council to approve the general
plan update with allowances for the full 4,500 additional units. The area
certainly has more capacity for housing, and by building more units, we can
reduce road travel (especially for employees commuting to the area), help
keep housing costs down by creating more housing stock and more affordable
housing, and create a greater sense of community -- especially in the
Bayshore area where Facebook is located.

I further urge the Council to recommend and approve the allowances for new
housing without any additional delay. Our city, county, and region is in
the midst of a decades long housing shortage and housing delayed is housing
