Stanford Development - PLEASE Negotiate a Better Deal for MP Residents

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

- 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: *Please ensure that Stanford MEETS or EXCEEDS the above

I have lived in Menlo Park for 35 years. I understand that development will
occur. Please negotiate a better deal.

As you are aware, the traffic situation on the peninsula is very difficult.
I feel you as Council Members can do your best to make sure Stanford does
not prevail totally in this matter.
