Stanford project

There is a traffic mitigation that has not been included in the proposed project: a trip cap. Virtually all of the other "mitigations" could support a cap, but only a cap will translate to limited new trips. Stanford knows how to do this. Require a strict, meaningful cap.

Before approving anything related to a grade crossing for pedestrians and bicyclists near Middle Ave. ensure that
 a) there is a safe, continuous, constantly accessible path (to community pedestrians and bicyclists) from University Ave to Alma and back. That does not exist now; it must be planned and available for public comment before approving a big project that lies in the middle of that path.

b) the total costs of the grade crossing and the above path along Middle through to Alma (might require widening Middle), including access across Cortana property, have been estimated. Only then can you and the public evaluate the fairness of Stanford's offer of paying a (modest) portion of the cost. Since Stanford's tenants benefit the most, Stanford the landlord should pay most of the total costs.

Sincerely, Patti Fry
