Medical office space reduction

Dear CC members:

    As you know the Planning Commission voted unanimously to recommend
amending the Specific Plan to limit medical office space in the plan area to a
maximum, for a single development project, of 33,333 square feet. I understand
that this number originated as 'one-third of a 100,000 square foot building'.
My sense is that it would be administratively and practically more useful to
use a number such as 35,000, 34,000, 33,000 or 30,000. A round number is
easier to remember, communicate and use for arithmetic. Plus it avoids people
having to ask where those extra digits came from. I'm sorry I didn't think of
this last night to discuss with the other commissioners but I think they'd see
the point of rounding to thousands as avoiding the false precision.

 Thanks very,
 John Kadvany / Menlo Park Planning Commissioner
 cc: MP PC, Thomas Rogers, Alex McIntyre
