Steve - no one thought it was a bad idea for Menlo. But Menlo has shown lousy leadership in FB dealings with regard to neighboring cities impacted by FB's presence & growth. Additionally, given the desire for the employees to cycle & reduce car trips, planning has certainly been needed to deal w/these issues, which are fairly complicated given FB's new location east of 101 & the lack of safe cycling routes.

I find it interesting that no one asks the residents of North Fair Oaks (unincorporated Menlo Park) what we think. You don't even have it on your list of neighborhoods. But as we are just off Marsh Road at Middlefield, and area that already has huge traffic problems, we are likely to see more with FaceBook swelling the local work and commute population. Yet no one has come to us offering mitigation or traffic easement money.
