Compliant - CS Bio on O'Brien Drive

Dear Planning Commission,

I am emailing regarding CS Bio's proposed seven story office building on O'Brien Drive. According to the Daily Post, "the city's zoning plan for the east side is all but maxed out on office space". This shows that the Menlo Park government is taking advantage of its eastside residents who aren't able to speak up and defend their neighborhood. An office building of this size would never be approved in west Menlo Park. Senate Bill 50 proposes the state take control of local housing requirements. This is due to government councils approving new office buildings without taking into consideration where these new employees will live. I am appalled that the Planning Commission members are even considering this development. There is already more than enough traffic on Willow and Dumbarton. How much will the City of Menlo Park make in tax revenue from this development? I ask because that is all this city's government has on its mind; increasing its revenue while forgetting about the health and wellbeing of its residents. Please do not allow this mega office building to take advantage of our city's lower-income residents.
Thank you,

Catie Heller
Menlo Park resident
