Support for New Guild Proposal

Dear Council,

I am an 8 year resident of Menlo Park and recently read about the “Save the
Guild” proposal to renovate the site for art films while adding musical
performances, etc. We've all seen evidence of the fate of single-screen art
house theaters like the Guild and the Park over the past years, so I am
asking that you make every effort to make review and approval of this
project a high Council priority.

According to the Almanac article earlier this week, Menlo Park is one of a
small number of potential sites/communities for this exciting entertainment
venue. As I commented on that story: "*This is exactly what downtown Menlo
Park needs. We've lived here for eight years and I've watched Redwood City,
San Carlos, and other similar cities offer more attractive reasons to visit
their downtowns than anything available here. There's obviously a balance
to be struck between retaining the "feel" and history of a place and
changing to grow as a community, and this project satisfies both sides of
that equation*."

This is a rare opportunity.

Please help make this project become a reality for your constituents.
