Re: The recent ban on all radio controlled aircraft in Menlo Park

Dear Ms. Brandell,

I wanted to follow up on my email of September 21 suggesting that you
reconsider the band on all r/c aircraft in Menlo Park. Can you let me know
how I might further discussion on this topic? This draconian ban on what
can be a very pleasing and peaceful leisure time activity seems, to me, to
partly defeat the purpose of this beautiful recreational area we have in
Menlo Park.

Respectfully yours,

Sanjay Bulchandani
1020 Coleman Avenue, Menlo Park, CA 94025
