Stanford Middle Plaza Project.

Dear City Council,

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 to their host cities.*

* 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! Stanford should MEET or EXCEED the above standards.

Even though this project will add many positive aspects to the community, I am concerned about the impact on traffic in the area and the burden on our schools and other public resources. It is your responsibility to negotiate the best deal you can for our community.

Thank you for your service!
