Stanford Middle Plaza Negotiations

Dear Council Members,
Thank you for all the good work you do!
The Stanford Middle Plaza project is an important issue that will have significant long term consequences for Menlo Park: please negotiate a better deal for our city.   
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. 

Consider what other major universities contribute in similar circumstances:Harvard provides $4.5 million per year to the City of Cambridge and Yale pays $7.5M to New Haven each year.   Stanford only proposes to provide $100K per year to the City to offset the impact to local public schools. 
You have the opportunity to insist that Stanford meets the above standards.
best regards,Brian Kruzic21 Willow Rd.
