Negotiate a Better Deal for Menlo Park Residents

Dear City Council,

My name is Evan Amato. I don't live in Menlo Park anymore, but I grew up there, I still have family there, and I still wish to see the best for the city.

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 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)

Our ask is that you please ensure that Stanford meets or exceeds the above standards for this project.


Evan Amato
