Proposed Facebook Project

Dear City Council Members,

Thank you for your service as council members.

I have been a resident of Menlo Park for the past 20+ years and have
personally witnessed the growth of the City along with the changes that
growth have brought to us. I learned the Facebook project will be
discussed at the Council meeting tonight. I was at the last Council
meeting where a number of community members from neighborhoods, Menlo
Atherton High School and Sequoia Union High School District expressed
concerns about the impact of additional housing units within the school
attendance boundary.

As a parent of current MAHS student and as a big supporter of public school
education, I have big concerns about the impact of the FB project on
enrollment at MA. I’d like to see an impact assessment be required of FB.
Such large unplanned growth would hugely negatively impact MA, our
students, traffic accessing the school, school parking, our community. We
all know that the health of a community can be measured in its schools,
 and that will falter with large unplanned growth at an already very large,
maxed out but still excellent, school. Menlo Park has become a desirable
place to live because of excellent public schools, and we should not
jeopardize the quality of public school education in the name of economic
growth.

I hope that you will require an impact assessment, followed by a meaningful
plan from FB to address the impact of its expansion on Menlo Atherton High
School.

Thank you for your consideration.
