Please don't let Stanford exploit Menlo Park

Dear City Council,

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

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 of universities their host cities.

(E.g., Harvard provides $4.5 million per year to the City of Cambridge. Yale pays $7.5M to New Haven per year. Currently, Stanford only proposes to provide $100K per year to the City to offset the impact to local public schools.)

*Please ensure that Stanford MEETS or EXCEEDS the above standards.*
