Support for the New Guild

Menlo Park City Council Members -

I am writing to express my support for the New Guild proposal. My family and I really enjoy live music, and would very much appreciate the opportunity to see such acts in our own area, alongside our friends and neighbors. As of now, we have to drive to San Francisco or Oakland to do so.

I think this is a chance to bring more vibrancy and a stronger sense of community and pride to downtown Menlo Park. We have such a wonderful town with interesting and talented residents, but don't have the creative outlets to reflect that side of us right now.

On the financial side, it would be great to keep our money here, instead of spending it in other towns and cities. A successful venue with thoughtful bookings could attract patrons to restaurants and other businesses in Menlo Park, as well.

I posted a proposal with Imagine Menlo Park several years ago when they requested ideas for the Guild, referencing the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, GA. It's an example of a existing historical theater being repurposed to host live acts and other events. It could be worthwhile to explore their model: http://www.variety-playhouse.com/

Thanks in advance for your consideration on this project.
