Facebook moving to Menlo Park--College Terrace happy
Original post made by Too Much Traffic on Jan 5, 2011
the article also mentions that the city initiated a program that required that 35% of Facebook employees use public transportation, carpools or shuttles to get to work. Apparently the city told Facebook that it could not add additional employees unless that 35% was maintained!!!
When was this program initiated? Did the public know about it? Talk about a blatant attempt at stifling free enterprise to placate a favored neighborhood in the city.
This is another example of the city making outrageous demands of large institutions (Facebook, Stanford etc) that bring revenue and prestige to the city--talk about biting the hand that feeds you.
I guess if Facebook moves, College Terrace will expect those locations to remain empty and unused, in order to maintain their expectations of tranquility. After all a new company that moves in there will surely have employees that commute to work.
