Hello Save Menlo group,

I live in MP and am mostly concerned about the traffic here along El Camino.

I have a question for you... the Menlo Park Deserves Better group (the group against the initiative) claims that with the initiative, we might get more medical offices which creates even more traffic. Also, Lisa Wise Consulting pointed out that we might get more retail instead, creating more traffic than the Specific Plan.

Can you please respond to those statements... I.e. wouldn't that be worse if the initiative led to even more traffic congestion than the current Specific Plan construction plans?

I look forward to hearing back with your analysis about the potential traffic congestion with the initiative vs. the current Specific Plan construction project plans of Stanford/Arrillaga and Greenheart.
