Dear City Council Members,
The traffic in Menlo Park is already out of control. Please demand that Stanford gives more to mitigate additional traffic resulting from the huge development at Middle and El Camino Real. At a minimum we need a bike/ pedestrian bridge. Stanford and the developer should cover the cost. They should limit number of parking spaces. People living near the train should use it! Stanford should provide all residents at this new development with free cal train passes.

We live on Partridge Ave. and will be greatly impacted from spillover and cut- through traffic onto side streets. This situation is already happening. Why ruin the quality of life for many. Demand Stanford to do more!! Why encourage over population? The area is suffocating...

> - 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.

>
> Our ask: *Please ensure that Stanford MEETS or Exceeds the standard set by similar institutions.
