Support for Peninsula Arts Guild

Dear Menlo Park City Council Members:

I wholeheartedly support the Peninsula Arts Guild proposal for transforming
the Guild Theater into a state-of-the-art entertainment venue. Downtown
Menlo Park has been doing a nice job of trying to reinvent itself by adding
outdoor seating, some shops previously only in San Francisco, and now
Truckeešs Coffee Bar, which our family visits regularly in Truckee, and can
now patronize at home too. The addition of the Peninsula Arts Guild fills
the gap in an area that Menlo Park has lacked ‹ a community gathering spot,
be it for school plays / performances, Kepleršs author talks that draw
larger crowds than they can handle, to comedians, lecturers and top notch
bands. The vision for the Peninsula Arts Guild reminds me of what the New
Varsity once was for Palo Alto -- a cool gathering spot for the young and
old alike, with varied and interesting events. How I long for such a spot in
this area again.

I have known Drew Dunlevie for over 10 years, as a neighbor and a friend. I
am positive there is no more capable person, with intelligence and
compassion, to have a vision that will benefit many, and the ability to
successfully execute on it. I was not able to attend the City Council
meeting this past week to express my support in person. Please accept this
email as a testament to my wholehearted and enthusiastic support for this
project, run by Drew and his colleagues.

If there is anything further I can to do support this proposal moving
forward, please do not hesitate to let me know.
