Hello, City Council and Planning Commission!

I don't know if it's relevant or if the issue has already been decided but,
since there are objections to the project at 975 Florence Lane, I wanted to
voice my opinion. I am strongly in favor of the project, especially since
it includes Below Market Rate housing.

Rents and purchase prices in our area have been increasing at a breakneck
pace. My father grew up in Menlo Park. I grew up in Menlo Park and I am
doing everything I can to continue living here.

I am a teacher. I don't take the label lightly. Teaching is my calling.
It is my honor and pleasure to be integrally involved in the learning,
growth and development of kindergarten students. I can't imagine having
any other career. Unfortunately, teaching is not the kind of job that
provides a salary that allows one to purchase a home in Menlo Park. BMR
housing is the only option. This development would be life changing for
someone like me. We contribute to Menlo Park's vitality and value. The
city can not continue to prosper without teachers, nurses, librarians,
caretakers, and other people who make less than $100,000 a year.

Please approve this project!

Thank you for taking my opinion into account.
