Dear Members of the Menlo Park City Council,

I am writing in support of the appeal by residents in the 700 block of Gilbert regarding the permit to construct a new 2-story house on the substandard lot at 752 Gilbert.

I understand that, in addition to being on a substandard lot, the scale of the proposed new house is not compatible with the neighborhood, being almost twice the height of most houses on that block, which would create a sense of bulk and disharmony in an otherwise pleasant neighborhood.

I urge you to seriously consider the input from concerned neighbors, and reject the Planning Commission’s decision on this matter, and require a maximum height for the new building that is more harmonious with the surroundings.
