Update on Discussion with Facebook re: Menlo Park General Plan Process

From: Mueller, Raymond <"Mueller,>
Date: Wed, 1 Apr 2015 18:12:58 -0700

Dear Colleagues,

First, please do not respond to this email for Brown Act purposes.

We want to update you on a further conversation we had earlier today with Facebook after last night’s study session, in which Facebook clarified their position on building heights along Willow Road. In brief, Facebook clarified that eight story buildings are not being suggested, and that the visual massing studies prepared by Placeworks were not intended to represent their vision for the Prologis property.
Facebook indicated that they remain in the early stages of developing a program for the site, and that their future planning efforts are intended to be responsive to the goals of the community. Facebook also noted that their office buildings have been designed at 0.45 FAR and they do not anticipate proposing higher office intensities as they formulate various master plan options for the Prologis site moving forward. Lastly, Facebook stated their support for the recommendation to take more time for study, education and outreach in connection with the Connect Menlo process.
With best regards,

Ray Mueller and Peter Ohtaki
City Council Representatives to the
General Plan Advisory Committee
