Negotiate for better deal with Stanford

From: Jennifer Miller <"Jennifer>
Date: Tue, 26 Sep 2017 08:48:55 -0700

Dear City Council,


I have been a Menlo Park homeowner since 2000. The city needs to continue
development, but it is your responsibility that we do so in a sustainable
manner, preserving the qualities that make Menlo Park such a great place to
live. You are my representatives in this negotiation and I am asking that
you hold Stanford to their own standards.


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

- 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.




Jennifer Miller
