Dear Mayor Ohtaki and esteemed Council Members,

I'm writing to remind the council that previous meetings showed support for
the establishment of a Belle Haven Amenities Fund to go along with the
General Plan Update that made possible increased development in the areas
in and around the Belle Haven neighborhood.

It was the intent of Bohannon when developing the Menlo Gateway project
several years ago to benefit Belle Haven as noted with the $750K of capital
improvements detailed in the Development Agreement. On Jan. 22, 2018 the
Planning Commission completed its *seventh
review of the <https://www.menlopark.org/DocumentCenter/View/16486> Menlo
Gateway Development Agreement (DA). But to date no fund has been created.

We are writing to request that the city create a fund.

Currently the Hotel Nia is recruiting staff and is due to open in March in
the General Plan Update Area. We request that the city allocate a
substantial portion of the hotel taxes from the hotel, and any hotel that
is built in the General Plan Update Area, and that those monies be placed
into the Belle Haven Amenities Fund to be spent on amenities for improved
quality of life for Belle Haven community members.

With respect,

Julie Shanson, Cecilia Taylor on behalf of Belle Haven Action

Julie Shanson
