Negotiate a better deal for Menlo Park residents

From: domainremoved <Gunter>

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 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) ) 
Please ensure that Stanford MEETS or EXCEEDS the above standards.
While you're at it, please give some attention to the out of place developmentat 2121 Sand Hill Road that is going to have an enormously negative impact onresidents not only of unincorporated WestMenlo Park, but the many city residents along Santa Cruz and Alameda.  We desperately need mitigation measures in this area as well.  
Sincerely,
Gunter J. Steffen
