Input for goal-setting meeting

Dear Mayor Ohtaki and City Council Members:

As you prioritize goals for 2018 for the city of Menlo Park, please include
the following:

1) New library for the Belle Haven community to promote literacy and
access to books: although hours have been slightly extended, it’s still
inadequate for the community;

2) Bring Belle Haven Elementary into the Menlo Park school system so
children on the east side of town have the same opportunity for a
high-quality education;

3) Improv traffic signage on the Willow interchange construction to
prevent accidents and confusion on part of drivers;

4) Extend pool hours at the Belle Haven community pool so it is
available for use on weekends;

5) Remove red light cameras in Menlo Park and reduce onerous citation
amounts: the amounts are unnecessarily punitive and recording photos is an
invasion of privacy;

6) Ensure that buses are routed onto a special lane on Bayfront
Expressway and not through Belle Haven: the quality of life needs to be
preserved in the neighborhood and buses being directed adjacent to homes
would adversely affect that quality of life;

7) Promote arts and music in the city through establishing an arts
commission: as far as I know, there is no arts commission—although we have
many talented artists and musicians living here;

8) Promote the many diverse cultures in the city and see them as an
asset to the city of Menlo Park.

I’m sure you’ll have a full plate this year and thank you for your time and
dedication to the community. The ceremony dedicating the Karl Clark park
was very well done, and thank you for responding to grassroots efforts to
recognize an exemplary citizen.

Thank you.
