Concerned Response to Stanford GUP

From: domainremoved <Ron>

David Rader,
I am requesting that the public comment period on the Stanford General Use Permit be extended to Feb 4th, a 60 day extension, be granted to allow our many communities and county residents time do review and analyze the complex issues associated with the General Use Permit. The traffic impact on all roads outside of the small academic zone is severe and easily appears that traffic would have double digit increases on key roads like Alpine, Sand Hill, Santa Cruz, El Camino, Embarcadero, University, Willows, Middlefield, Marsh, Alameda de las Pulgas, Valapariso, Page Mill, Junipero... Plus all of the neighborhood streets connecting these, as cut thru traffic and increased parking demand would appear to greatly increase.

This is complicated and without more time to look at recent traffic studies in concert with Stanford's analysis and the joint impact of other major development projected over the next few years, we don't have time to provide adequate information to our neighbors and neighboring communities.

Our ability to recommend mitigation measures to counter the increased traffic is unduly limited by not having the needed time to weight the new traffic analysis and other inputs - again not enough time to inform and engage the community and gather their concerns and input to form a competent response to the Use permit.

Please provided a 60 day extension to allow me and the community time to work through the complicated analysis needed to review the Stanford GUP in the important context of other development planning and actions, as all of these together greatly and potentially severely impact our roadways and neighborhoods.
