Remove Public Benefit Bonus from ECR-NE Low Density zone

Location: Menlo Park, CA <https://www.thepetitionsite.com/local/US/CA/MenloPark>
The ECR NE-Low Density District is located on the east side of El
Camino Real at the northerly boundary of the City of Menlo
Park and is characterized by a mix of smaller format retail,
restaurant and personal service uses, office uses, motel
and residential uses. The area is directly adjacent to single family
and medium density residential uses.

The current Downtown Specific plan places a 0.75 FAR on developments in this zone but also allows a Public Benefit Bonus of 1.10. This Public Benefit Bonus FAR effectively negates the Low Density designation.

The City Council is preparing to conduct a biennial review of the Downtown Specific Plan.

We the undersigned request that the Public Benefit Bonus be removed from the ECR-NE Low Density zone since the FAR allowed by that Public Benefit Bonus is inconsistent with the designation Low Density.
