Noise issue on Sand Hill Road in Sharon Oaks Drive

Hello Council members,

My name is Etay Gafni and I am the resident of 2443 Sharon Oaks Drive in
Menlo Park. My house backs to Sand Hill Road.

*Our small patio has a 5-foot thin concrete fence between the patio and
Sand Hill Road. The noise levels have increased tenfold since we purchased
the house in 2006*, and we can* no longer sit outside* and hear each other
talk over the noise. We can no longer open the windows on this side of the
house, and my two kids, whose rooms face Sand Hill Road, are having a hard
time falling asleep at night.

in *2003*, the MP City Council required Stanford to ensure that its latest
large expansion did not impact our indoor noise levels by adding an
additional requirement to its permit approval. Unfortunately, Stanford was
able to hide this change in noise level by only being held to a daily
average noise level (24 hours, including nights) which averaged away the
day time noise.

We are the only residential development that is on Sand Hill Road with no
green belt separating the traffic from our houses.

We are asking that in the next MP city council on *August 22nd*, when
Stanford is asking for the new permit, that you help us resolve the problem
by requiring Stanford to share the costs of a new, taller and wider Sand
Hill Road wall so that the Sharon Oaks owners on Sand Hill Road will be
able to enjoy our backyards without having to talk over extreme noise

Thank you in advance,

Etay Gafni
2443 Sharon Oaks Drive
