Letter: Too much traffic, not enough housing

In addition to unknown impacts of the new campus development at Stanford of two additional medical centers and one additional medical school adjacent to Sand Hill Road, Stanford is now proposing a huge development on El Camino Real in Menlo Park of medical offices at an already gridlocked Middle Avenue/El Camino intersection.

There is a gross shortage of housing in Menlo Park as made clear by the recent lawsuit settlement in which the city agreed to identify many more housing sites.

Perhaps creating transit-oriented housing would help alleviate both the traffic congestion and the housing shortage.
