The proposed Butcher’s Corner Project includes 99 apartments (6 and 7 story) as well as 39 3-story townhomes, significant and unavoidable traffic impacts at Kingfisher and Fremont, and includes deviations for EL Camino bldg front set-back, Fremont Ave front set-back, and reduced distance between buildings.
The Sunnyvale Planning Commission recommends a new traffic study, the Heritage Preservation Commission recommends that 6 trees be named Heritage Resources, the Stocklmeir school is grossly overcrowded and many, many people object to this project for a host of other reasons.
Topics to speak on – the inadequacy of EIR, or the many issues relating to the project as a whole. There will be only one hearing and one opportunity to speak. Speakers have 3 minutes. Visual aids are allowed, such as PowerPoint or PDF files. We are expecting the developer to bring lobbyists and high density development enthusiasts, so it is very important that the residents stand up for their community and reasonable development.

Oct 8, 2013 – Sunnyvale Resident Michael Goldman addressed the City Council regarding Candidate and Vice-Mayor Jim Griffith’s alleged illegal cybersquatting domain registration falsifying his opponent’s Tap Merrick’s identity in an attempt to mislead and defraud voters.

A Sunnyvale councilman’s unique tactic for generating web traffic to his re-election campaign is not sitting well with his opponent.
Councilman Jim Griffith is running against Tap Merrick for Seat 3 on the city council, and Griffith was quick to pounce on his opponent’s unclaimed web addresses. Griffith scooped up alternate versions of “tapmerrickforsunnyvale” web addresses to redirect traffic to his personal re-election website.
