Negotiate for Better Deal with Stanford

Dear Menlo Park City Council,

Please negotiate a better deal on behalf of Menlo Park residents on the Stanford Middle Plaza project (500 El Camino). At least request a 2 way no through sign at the Cambridge/El Camino intersection to prevent the massive cut through traffic in Allied Arts at rush hour. We cannot afford 2,658 extra cars a day on El Camino, and all the extra cut through traffic in the various neighborhood, but mostly in Allied Arts. Request a TDM from Stanford the same way you request it from Facebook so Stanford has an incentive to reduce traffic.

Also 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.
((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.
