Hillbrook CUP revisions from TC meeting of 3/17/15

posted in: Hillbrook School | 0

Submitted based on notes from Barbara Dodson, Marchmont resident.

Here are main points from what the Council approved for the new Hillbrook CUP.

· Daily school year maximum traffic cap of 880

· Hillbrook’s enrollment to increase by a maximum of 33 in 2016-2017, 33 in 2017-2018, and 33 in 2018-2019 to a maximum of 414 students contingent on Hillbrook complying with the traffic cap. (Once 414 is reached, the contingency no longer has any impact.)

· Times of use for parents and students limited to 7:30 AM-6:00 PM except for 10 specified exception days for special events during the Academic Year that may occur up to 9:30 PM

· 10 exception days on which Hillbrook daily traffic may exceed 880 but not exceed 960

· Summer use: maximum 150 enrollees, 300 maximum traffic cap, limited to six contiguous weeks. Summer hours: 8:30-1:00.

· Ann Arbor access to remain closed. Only emergency access allowed. No focused study.

· Shuttle/bus stops only at locations approved by the Parks and Public Works Department as being suitable and safe or on private properties with which Hillbrook has negotiated agreements

· Pickups and drop-offs not permitted on neighborhood streets

· Compliance reviews biannually for the first year and annually thereafter

· Monthly review of compliance with traffic cap

· Penalties: month 1 of noncompliance with traffic cap—$1,000 per day, $100 per car; month 2–$2,500 per day, $200 per car; month 3–$5,000 per day, $500 per car. It’s not clear how this will be written. For example, will the months of noncompliance be reset every academic year so the school starts fresh each fall?

· No reductions in enrollment included in the penalty condition

There is a condition about third-party use, but the language is murky (at least to me).
