Robinson asks for 'aggressive' trip reductions


At a Palo Alto City Council meeting Monday, May 24, on the a proposed renovation of Stanford University's medical facilities, Menlo Park Councilman Heyward Robinson asked Palo Alto to consider forcing Stanford to undertake "very, very aggressive trip reductions" to ameliorate the impact the project would have on local traffic.

"We certainly recognize benefits of having a world-class medical facility in our midst and having it expand and be even better than it is, but we have to figure out how to manage this flow of folks," Mr. Robinson said.
