a better deal for Menlo residents

Dear City Council,

You need to negotiate a much better deal on behalf of Menlo Park residents on Stanford's Middle Plaza project. All residents are very concerned about the traffic —already a serious problem-that will be added to our streets by Stanford’s and Greenheart 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 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) )

You have the power to negotiate a better deal. Start acting on behalf of the residents!!

Our ask: Please ensure that Stanford MEETS or EXCEEDS the above standards. They want this project to proceed and will not walk away. They can afford to do much better by Menlo Park but will not do so unless the city council shows some backbone and requires they do more.

Sincerely, Lynn Segal and Cecile Currier, 1080 San Mateo Drive, Menlo Park, Ca
