Oak Grove Bike Route Pilot

Dear Members of the City Council,

As the incoming Superintendent of the Menlo Park City School District, I am
writing to express my sincere hope that the City Council will allow the Oak
Grove Bike Route Pilot to move forward expediently.

The safety of our children is our number one priority. Parents agonize
about the decision to allow their kids to ride a bike to school in our area
due to the risk factors related to traffic, space, awareness, education,
and safety. As traffic becomes more congested and development continues to
increase, it's essential that we provide safe routes for our children to
get to and from school on a bike.

As the leader of an organization that models a design approach to solving
most challenges, I urge you to embrace a mindset of prototyping, testing,
and reiterating. As I understand the process, the community has had, and
will continue to have during the piloting, ample opportunity for input.

I am not wedded to a solution; I do, however, prioritize child safety over
all else. Please move forward with the Oak Grove Bike Route Pilot and allow
the design process, with ongoing feedback and input from the community, to
move forward.

Erik Burmeister
