I would like the City Council to consider Niroop Srivatsa as our permanent City Manager. After having a one to one conversation with her about the importance of arts in our community, diversity & inclusion in our schools and education and observing her in action during City Council subcommittee meetings, I have deep respect for her knowledge of city planning, city history, city politics and vision. She is diplomatic, thoughtful, open to thinking out of the box and LISTENS. On a personal note, it is encouraging to see a woman of color serve as a leader in our community. Please consider Niroop as our permanent City Manager.

Everything about this project is exactly the opposite of what Lafayette needs...
No to increased density
No to removing local infrastructure ( medical offices) that support our community
No to removing local jobs
No to increased classroom sizes at our local schools
No to increased traffic everywhere, especially at the most trafficked corner of our town

The 1/2 mile to BART is as the bird flies and doesn’t meet the state’s “walking” goal of 1/2 mile. The true walking distance is 50% greater to around .75 miles.
Second, the 1/2 mile is only places it halfway within the project and 50% of the project is OUTSIDE their radius given the architect’s own survey.

Corporate Terraces -
I regularly visit three professional offices for various medical needs. Being an elder, I am grateful they reside in Lafayette. If the proposed development is approved, where will these three medical facilities move to and remain within the Lafayette? I feel threatened buy this proposal, as it would negatively affect my quality of life. Further, I appreciate the current architecture, as it is visually unobtrusive.
We need access to professional / medical facilities in Lafayette, not more residential complexes in our core area.

The qualities I would like to see are all embodied in Niroop! Why look any further?!

Lafayette is being transformed into a high density wreck. The endless building and profiteering by developers is a disaster. Shame on those involved.

I think this ban is a very good thing. I'm not sure how a tobacco retailers license program would assist in keeping flavored tobacco out of children's hands.

This is a disaster! I can’t believe it. That little medical complex has been a godsend for us and many others. We are in our 90’s and depend on that locale for our medical needs. That’s as civil as I can be!

Lafayette had the chance to accept modest-single family homes, but Save Lafayette and it's supporters are NIMBYS.
We've been renting in Lafayette for 7 years, serving the community, working within its boundaries and as a young family, we'd love to call this town our permanent home. WE NEED to accommodate more moderate housing in Lafayette and have the chance to do so while respecting Lafayette's "charm" and "character.". The EIR and traffic studies were performed years ago.
Accept it, change is coming.

I'm wondering if the developer has hired an Engineer to study the short/long term impacts of traffic on Deer Hill Road being a single lane road both directions as I'm very concerned about the impact of 315-594 cars spilling onto a single lane road daily and the impacts this will have on residents. This development will choke that intersection indefinitely if something isn't done to expand Deer Hill Road. Expanding Pleasant Hill Road with sidewalks, trails and a bike path, along with modifying the traffic on Pleasant Hill Road will do nothing to ease the traffic on Deer Hill Road which already is congested like Highway 24. Some serious corrections need to be done to ease car traffic for residents and new residents to get in/out/past this new proposed development otherwise residents will be left with a huge burden as most of us drive this intersection to avoid the Highway 24 backup.
