> Red curbing will eliminate critically important parking spaces!

> Being a native of Menlo Park, I've seen many changes regarding parking throughout the downtown area from Valparaiso to Roble Ave. Streets north of Santa Cruz have various parking restrictions from "no parking" on one side to limited parking on both sides. They vary probably in part due to residents living on those streets asking for some sort of relief from all day parking.
> The area south of Santa Cruz, in particular University Dr., Oak Lane, Live Oak, Roble Ave have no restrictions resulting in all day parking by employees either from Draeger's or from those working in the general area. Because of this, parking in this area can be extremely difficult. Guests and workers on a job often find it very hard to park. Now I see that there is a proposal to limit parking by red curbing certain areas on University Dr., Live Oak, and Crane. This proposal facilitates bikers without taking into account the problems it would create for parking. Please give thought to the following.
> 1. By red curbing University Dr., Live Oak, and Crane St., you will be eliminating approximately 50 parking spaces.
> 2. Where will people who normally use this area park? This will create a domino effect whereby people who park in the area will park in another residential area.
> 3. Where will guests/workers park?
> Before seriously considering this proposal to facilitate bikers, you need to look at the whole picture of parking in downtown Menlo Park making it convenient not only to employees but to the residents living on the streets in question.
