Negotiate a Better Deal for Menlo Residents

Dear City Council,

I’m extremely concerned about all the potential development along El Camino and the increased traffic congestion. It is already a traffic mess much of the day and especially in the morning and late afternoons/evening.

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. - i.e., 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

Please ensure that Stanford MEETS or EXCEEDS the above standards.*
