Two Meetings

Dear Palo Altans,

There are two significant projects that will be coming upon us that will require your attention.

Stanford University’s growth and expansion proposal

Supervisor Joe Simitian is hosting community meeting on Stanford University’s General Use permit associated Draft Environmental Impact Report. This community meeting held by Supervisor Simitian at Palo Alto City Hall will serve as an opportunity to hear about the proposed development and the process for reviewing it, including the opportunity for public engagement. It will also be a forum for the community to offer comments for consideration in the Final Environmental Impact Report.

Date:  Thursday, October 19, 2017
Time:  6:00pm – 8:00pm
Location:  Council Chambers, Palo Alto City Hall, 250 Hamilton Avenue, Palo Alto

The City of Palo Alto’s Draft Comprehensive Plan proposes the following growth for Palo Alto:

City Council will be reviewing and discussing the draft Final Environmental Impact Report and Comprehensive Plan in a public meeting.

Date:  Monday, October 23, 2017
Time:  7:45pm

Your opinion is important! These proposals will change Palo Alto significantly in the next 15-20 years. Your opinion on the aesthetics, traffic congestion, parking, adequate housing, neighborhood impacts, schools, parks & open space, air quality, biological resources, cultural resources, energy conservation, geology and soils, greenhouse gas emissions, hazards and hazardous materials, hydrology and water quality, land use, noise and vibration, population and housing, public services, recreation, transportation and circulation, utilities and services systems community.

Essentially, the escalation of non-residential growth, the weak mitigations offered against traffic and congestion, the lack of business commitment to fund mitigations and the weak responses on sustainability must be addressed.
