relationship between Stanford and the community are stronger and warmer? Come on over to Menlo Park where residents are in turmoil over the proposed development Stanford has proposed for the 8 plus acre parcels on El Camino Real. Stanford participated in the city's five-year Specific Plan process and heard clearly what the city needed to obtain sales tax driven businesses on El Camino. Stanford representatives listened; kept their mouths shut; took notes and stroked the sorry egos of the city's staff to insert into the Plan every loop hole it could so that the city is facing a development with little retail, no hotel, less housing than it could have, a dangerous plaza that includes lanes of traffic, and an increase of development related traffic that will find its way into the modest neighborhoods west of El Camino Real.
No, warmer is not the word to describe the relationship Stanford has with the community. [Portion removed by Palo Alto Online staff.]

Wow, people are so bitter and mean-spirited. Mr. Horton had a tough job given all the Stanford-hating Palo Altans who complain about everything but never acknowledge the good the University does for our community. Good luck to Mr. Horton in his retirement.
