Dear City Council,

It is my hope that you will take some time out of your busy schedules to
attend tomorrow night's Environmental Quality Commission meeting.

On the agenda is the ill-conceived Sharon Height's PPP to put a well in a
public park to take the ground water for a private country club when not
one drop of water is saved.

See the white-washing of Public Works Staff first hand! Staff should be
the public advocate rather than our Nemesis on such a project. Not only
was absolutely no mention made of 100% Neighborhood opposition of this
project - it's against Menlo Park's own Water Policy!! It's not a
permitted use of Open Space and Conservation District land (Nealon Park,)
there is no cost benefit analysis of putting small wells in those parks to
provide benefit to the City. Staff ignored the EQC's request for halting
work on this until and unless gray and ground water management plans are in
place. What more does Staff need to kill this project?? They should be
leading the charge to kill this project, not championing it - it is
starting to make the Staff look ridiculous, really!

But evidently the buck stops with the City Council. So, with that in mind,
let's not waste more resources on a project that should have been a
non-starter. Come tomorrow night; witness the white-washing and kill this
project once and for all.
