Stanford Project

Dear City Council Members,

I urge you to do a better job negotiating the proposed development deal
with Stanford. From everything I've read, the proposed deal will result in
exponentially more traffic and stress on the city, with minimal
compensation from Stanford. The intersection with Safeway is already an
unmitigated disaster. Rush hour traffic is horrible. Getting in and out of
the Safeway lot during peak times on weekends is a feat that deserves a
gold medal.

My understanding is that in similar circumstances with institutions such as
Harvard and the city of Cambridge the university pays the town 25+ times
the level of compensation currently on the table from Stanford. Can you
honestly say this is the best deal you can get for the residents and
taxpayers of Menlo Park?

Please reconsider. This is a hot button issue for many.

Sincerely,

Lucy Calder
