2018 workplan: Please include the HAWK beacon (Middlefield/Linfield crossing project)

Dear City Council,

Crossing Middlefield road at the existing crosswalk at Linfield is
extremely treacherous for an adult and even worse for a child walking or
riding a bike. You either push the button when there are no cars around for
miles (in which case its fairly useless) or you can play Russian Roulette
and push it when there is active traffic on Middlefield road and see a
significant amount of the cars ignore it. ("Warning traffic may not
stop!"). I hate to think what might happen if a blind or disabled person
tried to use it. I will not let my bike age children use it without my
being there - and I won't even use it myself after dark.

This is a shame - because it prevents easy access to wonderful Burgess Park
and beyond for those of us in Seminary and WIllows neighborhoods.

The proposed double HAWK beacon near the Fire Station on Middlefield road
would be a welcome addition to improving SAFE access across Menlo Park and
I would feel comfortable allowing my young children to use it on foot or
walking a bike.

I realize the council has many competing projects - but I am hopeful that
this one can be considered a no-brainer.

Thanks for your consideration.

-Craig Cohen
310 Santa Monica Ave (South of Seminary)
