Proposed Stanford development

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 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) )

Stanford University is a 1 per-center. They have a ton of money & can well afford to give MP more. It would be disgrace for MP to get so manipulated by Stanford they shouldn't be allowed to get away w/out paying property tax anyway
