Letter to Council - Agenda Item 6.1 Gatekeeper for 355-365, 401,415 East Middlefield Road

Dear Mayor Abe Koga and the members of council:

We are excited to see the first project in the East Whisman Precise Plan area coming to council for approval!
There’s much to like about this project:

  • Located walking and biking distance to offices in the East Whisman neighborhood
  • 427 much needed homes, including 157 missing middle ownership homes
  • Addition of a 16000 sq foot public park
  • Walking distance to Middlefield light rail station
  • $4 million community benefit contribution ($1.5 million more than is required)

We urge the council to expedite the approval of this project, ensuring it can continue forward.
David Watson
