Why businesses consider Menlo Park to be an unfriendly City

Over a year ago the Menlo Park Fire Protection District entered into a lease with Stanford University for one of the many vacant automobile dealership sites on El Camino. That site had been used for 30 years to store, display, repair and paint automobiles and to train its personnel. Now, more than a year later, the Fire District is still prohibited by the City of Menlo Park from using this site for virtually the same uses.
This is the fire department which serves the cities of Menlo Park, East Palo Alto and Atherton and yet the City treats it like a foreign entity rather than with the welcome arms which it deserves.
Is there any wonder that businesses consider Menlo Park to be an unfriendly place to locate?
