Dear Mr. Burmeister and Ms. Wolosin:

Thank you for your emails. I have good news. My conflict on this matter has resolved. Ms. Wolosin, Mr. Kirsch, Ms. Welton, and Ms. Walser, I would appreciate the opportunity to sit down and meet with you jointly at your earliest convenience to discuss this matter. Mr. Burmeister, I also would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and your staff individually as a Councilmember to discuss Safe Routes to School issues generally throughout the City, that include other locations.

With best regards,
Ray Mueller

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
