Willows Traffic Plan: PLEASE OPPOSE!

Dear City Council:

For many months I have watched and observed a vibrant email discussion on the possible plans to reduce traffic in the Willows neighborhood in Menlo Park.

It is completely clear that there is no plan that has even close to universal support. The plans are flawed, and completely neglect the negative impacts that they will have, slowing local traffic and diverting it to other areas of the neighborhood.

The transportation commission voted against these plans. This is because there is no good plan. To move ahead in spite of this is clearly against the wishes of the residents of this neighborhood.

The two plans, being pushed by a few people, who are misrepresenting its impact as well as the small amount of support for it. Furthermore, BOTH plans are opposed by most of the residents of this neighborhood. Neither is a good alternative, despite how this is being portrayed.

PLEASE DO NOT MOVE FORWARD WITH ANY OF THESE PLANS. It would be a waste of resources, and is frankly undemocratic, given the clear lack of support that these plans have.
