You must improve the agreement for Stanford Middle Plaza

Dear City Council,

My family will be greatly impacted by the new Stanford project. Their
proposal does a disservice to Menlo Park as a town and shows a lack of
respect for Menlo Park as a community.

THEREFORE, please negotiate a better deal on behalf of Menlo Park residents!

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.

According to Save Menlo Park: 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: *Please ensure that Stanford MEETS or EXCEEDS the above

Kind regards,


Martha Onasch & Eric Humphriss

550 Morey Drive (at Middle Ave!)
