I am happy that Menlo Park has reached an agreement on the Derry Lane Project. I look forward to more housing closer to transit as this fronts a major bus transit corridor, El Camino Real, and is adjacent to Menlo Park Caltrain.

I'm happy to hear that the Derry Lane Project is now a real possibility. I have been on the BMR list for over 9 years and finally hope to have an opportunity to buy an affordable condo. I am disabled and am hoping there will be an accessible condo available.

Jill, please explain why I, as a resident and taxpayer, should be subsidizing your housing. I keep hearing that the BMR units exist so that our public service workers can live in Menlo Park, but as far as I can tell, they don't want to live to live in one of those little units on the tracks. I live in a home that I can afford, and I don't expect the people of Hillsborough or Atherton to make it possible for me to live in their towns. You already live in Menlo Park; why do you think we should be paying for you to have a condo here?
