Do not adopt Save Menlo Initiative

Dear City Council Members


I do not believe that the Save Menlo initiative should be adopted.


It does not seem appropriate to me that the ideas of one group of citizens
should be adopted for such a complex topic as general development


While well intended, elements of this initiative could have unintended
consequences as pointed out in the independent consultants analysis,
leading to more traffic or less open space that some of the requirements in
the current requirements.


The city of Menlo Park has spent significant time and had public input into
developing the existing specific plan. Should changes be required to the
existing specific plan, they should include similar thorough analysis and
public input.


Thank you,


Valerie Van Sickle
