I've heard $15 million being talked about as a great deal for Menlo Park, and then I hear that it is $15 million over 14 years. That's only ~$1 million a year--always supposing that FB is still around in 14 years.

Given Menlo Park's total failure as the Lead Agency for the EIR on the Facebook expansion project the current situation was totally predicted and completely preventible.
Why didn't the City of MenloPark call an open meeting with ALL of the impacted jurisdictions at the very beginning of this effort to insure that everyone's issues would be on the table so that there would be an equitable mechanism for dealing with those issues - as is required by CEQA?

Good question Peter.
Answer: incompetence, arrogance or a mixture of both.
