Stanford Middle Plaza project: Negotiate for better deal with Stanford

From: domainremoved <Libby>

Dear City Council,


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


The residents of Menlo Park deserve better!


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 in their host cities (i.e., Harvard University 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.


Sincerely,

-Libby
