Please continue discussion of Stanford's GUP amendment request for Quarry Rd project

Planning Commissioners,

Please delay your consideration of this project to allow the City of Menlo
Park the opportunity to comment on its new impacts to our community.

It is more than disappointing that our City was not notified of this
project, particularly in light of Stanford's massive El Camino Real project
and the Sand Hill Rd annexation project that were each approved last month
with nary a mention of these additional impacts so close to those projects
and our town. The new location is within 1/2 mile distance of Menlo Park
and the Stanford El Camino Real project site. The old location was more
than a mile away.

While the trips may not be that different on Quarry Rd in comparison with
the prior location at the other end of campus, the trip distribution and
IMPACTS on nearby intersections, roadways, and neighborhoods will be
considerably altered. It feels as if Stanford has chosen to piecemeal its
approval requests rather than providing a comprehensive picture to either
of our counties and communities.

Please allow adequate time for the City of Menlo Park to weigh in on the
project and its impacts, and potential mitigation.

Thank you for your consideration,
Patti Fry
Menlo Park resident (former Planning Commissioner)
