Item K1: Please Approve Term Sheet for Middle Plaza (500 El Camino) on Tuesday

Dear City Council members,

As a 15-year Menlo Park resident, I've been living on Santa Margarita
Avenue with hopes that this day would come. My family and I request that
you vote "yes" to approve the Term Sheet with Stanford University.

My family and I believe that tonight we should, as a community, show the
courage and leadership to move forward with plans to embrace this version
of Stanford's Middle Plaza: a thriving, vibrant mixed-use, transit-oriented
project with so many housing units. My family and I are long since
exhausted at seeing the fallow land remain unproductive for our city. We
desire more variety of restaurants, more neighbors reflecting a more
diverse population, and more intelligent development proximate to the train
stations. This is a supportable project.

We also want to encourage Menlo Park to accept Stanford's generous,
voluntary offer to pay for the tunnel ($5 million!) by voting "yes" on this
very Term Sheet tonight. This is a real gift. This tunnel will greatly
improve the safe route for our kids from our Santa Margarita/Santa
Monica/Vintage Oaks/Willows neighborhoods as they bike to Hillview School.
This is a huge win for Menlo Park.

Thank you,
Tiffany Griego
