Crossing at Middlefield and Santa Monica/Linfield

Dear council members,

I am writing to you in regards to the *crossing at Middlefield and Santa
My husband, 4 children and I live in the Willows -- on Willow rd to be
precise -- and I have experienced myself along with my children and
observed others crossing Middlefield at this intersection. Middlefield
being such a busy road and the traffic in the neighborhood becoming so
chaotic it is becoming more and more dangerous and I would like to urge the
City Council to help *fund a safer crossing there*.
I know you have been having conversations with the Parents for Safe Routes
group and I am fully supportive of this initiative and other efforts to
make Menlo Park more pedestrian- and bike-friendly. This is the only
alternative I see in this ever-growing traffic for residents of the Willows
and Lindenwood to access downtown Menlo Park and for children of those
neighborhoods to ride their bike to Hillview middle school for instance.
With growing concerns about traffic in Menlo Park in general, I am hoping
the council is actively looking for opportunities to reduce traffic and I
find the *pedestrian/cylist-activated stoplights proposal by the Parents
for Safe Routes group* to be a great solution to facilitate and encourage
pedestrians and cyclists.

Best Regards,
Anne-Sophie and Jean-Philippe Loose (236 Willow Rd)
