Dear City Council,

Thank you for your hard work trying to improve our city. However, I am concerned with upcoming development proposal.
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) ) My concern is with car traffic. something needs to be done to preserve the safety and character of Menlo Park Sincerely,
Rebecca McNiven, Menlo Park Resident
