Proposed Hampton Inn Proposal PF2 (1704 ECR)

Hi,

I'm a resident at 1731 Stone Pine Lane in Menlo Park and am writing in
regards to the proposed hampton inn construction 1704 ECR (developer Sagar
Patel) which is less than 1 block from my home.

As with others in my community (>100 residents), I have significant
concerns with these plans:

- it's completely surrounded by residential homes and ruins the ambiance of
a peaceful, family, community with an overbearing commercial presence
- several of the proposed rooms overlook directly into people's homes and
there isn't enough set back from the property homes
- the look and feel of the proposed plans looks incredibly cheap and will
likely reduce the value of the homes in the area - if it was spanish style
similar to the legal firms nearby that would be better.
- the press is already starting to buzz about this situation and it will
get worse;
https://www.almanacnews.com/news/2018/10/08/menlo-park-neighbors-raise-concerns-about-proposed-hotel-plans
- by increasing the occupancy significantly, there will no doubt be hotel
guests filling into the restricted parking for residents less than 50 yards
from the hotel.
- the third floor should be replaced completely with a trellis or
landscaping
- the new plans involve removing 15 beautiful trees on the site of which at
least 6 are heritage trees

Thank you for your time.
