Dear City Council,
Below is a "canned" email about the issues and impacts of the proposed Stanford project you will review tonight. In the growth/no-growth debate it seems bigger is the only thing that is considered better/to be hated. I'm a resident that thinks these sustainable goals are not unreasonable and we should make a deal that works for both parties.

"Please negotiate a better deal on behalf of Menlo Parkresidents on the Stanford Middle Plaza project.  Stanford's Current Proposed Agreement: - does not meet Stanford's own traffic reduction andmonitoring standards in Santa Clara county- does not meet Stanford's own environmentalsustainability standards on campus - does not meet standard payments in lieu of taxes ofuniversities their host cities. ((ie:  Harvard provides $4.5 million per year to theCity of Cambridge. Yale pays $7.5M to New Haven per year.   CurrentlyStanford only proposes to provide $100K per year to the City to offsetthe impact to local public schools) ) 
*Our ask:  Please ensure that Stanford MEETS orEXCEEDS the above standards.* " Regards,

Russ PetersonFelton Gables
