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
 - will result in significant cut-through traffic in the Allied Arts neighborhood
 - 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. ((ie: 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.
