Please hold Stanford accountable to the same high standards it sets for students

Dear City Council,

Many of Menlo Park residents are Stanford alumni, supporters, and donors.
The university needs to be a good neighbor and a good citizen, in the same
way that they expect that of their students and alums.

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

Stanford's Current Proposed Agreement:

- 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 to their
host cities. Currently Stanford only proposes to provide $100K per year to
the City to offset the impact to local public schools.

Please ensure that Stanford meets or exceeds the above standards.

Sincerely,

The Battles Family

Central Menlo residents
