Facebook puts 1 million dollars in a project so the taxpayers will pay billions....

I oppose Willow Village becase adding additional office space will make traffice that is horrible even worse. Adding housing with out addressing infrastructure and traffic is not what Menlo Park needs. If the city allows this to move forward then they shoudl make the rebuilding of the Dumbarton Rail bridge a requirement for Facebook. Yes it will cost a lot of money, but Facebook can probably get it done faster and cheaper than the government.
