Stanford Middle Plaza Project

From: domainremoved <Sandra>

I write to urge you to negotiate a better deal for residents of Menlo park concerning the Stanford Middle Plaza Project. This project will have a major impact on the city. I live in the Willows Neighborhood in Menlo Park, and recent growth and changes much less extensive than the Stanford Middle Plaza Project have greatly increased the volume and speed of traffic on my street.
        The proposed Stanford Middle Plaza Project agreement
        —does not meet Stanford’s own traffic reduction and monitoring standards for Santa Clara County.
        —does not meet Stanford’s own environmental sustainability standards on campus
—does not meet Stanford’s own environmental sustainability standards on campus
—does not meet standard payments in lieu of taxes of universities concerning their host cities.
                —Harvard provides $4.5 million per year to the city of Cambridge.
                —Yale pays $7.5 million per year to New HAVEN,
Currently Stanford propose only $100 thousands per year to the City to offset the impact to local public schools.

We deserve better than this.

Sincerely,
Sandra Drake
