Dear Menlo Park City Council,

We are San Mateo Dr. neighbors of Mike Harding who passed away in November
2013. Mike lived on San Mateo Dr. for many decades and was well known to
the residents as a true community volunteer who demonstrated a generous and
modest spirit. His dedication to Menlo Park and San Mateo County is well
known to many cyclists and pedestrians who use the San Mateo Dr. bridge
over the San Francisquito Creek. Mike was a soldier in the effort to get
the bridge approved but a soldier of unique grace and modesty. His
perseverance and patience calmed the concerns of residents near the bridge
which contributed to the successful approval for this now popular asset to
the neighborhood and the region.

We believe that naming the San Mateo Dr. bridge for Mike Harding would be a
fitting tribute to his many years of contribution to the city. Mike was a
long standing member of the city's Bicycle Commission, the San Mateo County
Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee and the Silicon Valley Bicycle
Coalition. The council will undoubtedly be hearing from members of these
organizations who will join us in this request. There would be no cost to
the city because there has been a ground swell from those who admired Mike
and the task of raising funds for a plaque would be handled by a private

 We ask that the Council place our request on its agenda for consideration.

Thank you,

Rory and Lyla McInerney
