    Willow bike paths
    Willow Road will need safe bike paths from Middlefield Road to the Bay access road near ex Sun property, especially crossing the 101 overpass. The Willow Road business areas will need a facelift as well as a clean up. The Willows area is in a great school district and would be a wonderful area for employees to commute. Perhaps the grocery store on Middlefield could be updated and become bike friendly.
    Could use more trees and green areas

    Encourage Bicycle Computing
    Facebook's efficient use of buildings without offices or cubes will put more than twice as many people as Sun had in the same space. This will require pushing people to commute alternatives to avoid gridlock. Making Menlo Park and East Palo Alto bike friendly for commuters will be one the cheapest ways to minimize traffic impact.

    Emphasize Wetlands Protection
    A "sense of place" should include a sense of the historic wetlands in this area with an eye towards expanding and restoring wetlands for their own intrinsic habitat value and for protection against potential sea level rise.
