Please explain how building at sri, usgs and flood school is sharing equally across MP. Please add to this list the fact that the county is zoning flood park predominantly for sports fields. Their parking plan looks as if they might well count Bay rd as part of the parking solution.

And why would you consider mitigating the inconvenience to suburban park by redirecting traffic through flood triangle/ Van Buren?? How is doing that to Flood triangle a mitigation?

What about fb? They own well over half the city’s land and Mark claims that half of his people will be working from home over the next five years.

Covid changed the game. More and more people are working from home at least part time. We need to start knocking on the doors of the mega companies up and down the peninsula that have swallowed up vast tracts of land for their private use. Or should I say, their private under-use?

I’m all for sharing the responsibility for creating affordable housing. So far, the plan for Menlo Park is not “Sharing” and that’s not right.

It's interesting that Drew Combs (council member for the Flood School Site) is suddenly changing his tune. His district pleaded with him to fight for something reasonable on that site and he just shrugged. Now he sees landslide of support from homeowners for the initiative. We will remember how you ignored us and fought against us at the next election, Drew. We will remember how you put your employer Facebook's needs over MP homeowners.
