Negotiate a better deal for Menlo Park 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 campus (this is a non-negotiable for obvious health concerns particularly to our population along the El Camino corridor)

- 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) )

Please ensure that Stanford EXCEEDS the above standards. Why wouldn’t you protect our children and citizens of all ages? Please explain why?


Jenny & Tom Sullivan
