Negotiate a better deal for Menlo Park residents

Dear Members of the Menlo Park City Council,

In advance of tonight's meeting about the Stanford Middle Plaza project, I'm writing to urge you to negotiate a better agreement on behalf of Menlo Park residents. Along with many of my neighbors, I have significant concerns about the development's impact on traffic and local schools as well as its environmental sustainability.

It is my understanding that Stanford's Current Proposed Agreement proposes to provide just $100K per year to the City to offset the impact to local public schools, an amount that falls far short of standard payments in lieu of taxes that other universities pay to their host cities.

Furthermore, it does not meet Stanford's own environmental sustainability standards for the campus or its traffic reduction and monitoring standards in Santa Clara County.

I believe that the City and Stanford can do better. On behalf of all Menlo Park residents, please ensure that Stanford meets or exceeds the above standards.
