Dear City Council,

Please negotiate a better deal on the Stanford Middle Plaza project on behalf of Menlo Park residents.

Stanford's Current Proposed Agreement:

* Does not meet Stanford's OWN traffic reduction and monitoring standards in Santa Clara county.

* Does not meet Stanford's own environmental sustainability standards on campus.

* Does not meet standard payments in lieu of taxes from universities to their host cities.
Examples: Harvard provides $4.5 million per year to the City of Cambridge.
Yale pays $7.5M per year to New Haven.
Currently Stanford only proposes to provide $100K per year to the City of Menlo Park to offset the impact to local public schools.

Please ensure that Stanford MEETS or EXCEEDS the above standards.

Thank You,
Darshana Maya Greenfield
Menlo Park CA 94025
