Better deal for Menlo Park

From: domainremoved <Karinne>

Dear City Council,

Please negotiate a better deal on behalf of Menlo Park residents on the Stanford Middle Plaza project.

Stanford's Current Proposed Agreement:

- does not include an extension of the existing bike lane which currently ends at the El Camino fields (Alma /sand hill /Stanford park hotel ) We need to encourage more biking by providing SAFE bike lines throughout Menlo Park!!!!!!! We should have a bike lane that runs entire spam along Cal Train tracks from Stanford Park Hotel through to Atherton !!!!! And Stanford and Facebook should pay for it!!

- does not meet Stanford's own traffic reduction and monitoring standards in Santa Clara county

- does not meet Stanford's own environmental sustainability standards on campus

- does not meet standard payments in lieu of taxes of universities their host cities.

((ie: Harvard provides $4.5 million per year to the City of Cambridge. Yale pays $7.5M to New Haven per year. Currently Stanford only proposes to provide $100K per year to the City to offset the impact to local public schools) )

*Our ask: Please ensure that Stanford MEETS or EXCEEDS the above standards.*
