RE: German-American International School expansion and traffic

Ms. Barr,

As part of their use permit for the 475 Pope Street site, German American International School (GAIS) will have the same daily trip cap of 920 vehicle trips as their O'Connor site. The 475 Pope site will be monitored twice a year to determine whether the school is in compliance with their trip cap. If the monitoring shows that the school exceeds their trip cap, GAIS will have 60 days to revised their transportation demand management (TDM) program to add TDM measures to reduce their trips. GAIS will have an additional 60 days to implement those TDM measures. After implementation, the City will conduct subsequent monitoring. If the school still exceeds their trip cap, the school will not be allowed to increase their student enrollment and may also need to reduce their student enrollment to stay within their daily trip cap. The school has stayed within their daily trip cap since it was implemented in 2012, and the City has not received any school related traffic complaints.

> Dear City Council,
> I am very glad to hear that German-American International School (GAIS) has found a new home in the Willows neighborhood.
> I am concerned, however, about the expansion of the student body from 315 kids to 400 kids in this smaller location and what that will mean from a traffic perspective.
> I hope the City continues to impose traffic restrictions on GAIS as it has at its O'Connor location. I would hope those restrictions would keep the traffic to the current restricted levels, despite the proposed expansion of students.
> Respectfully,
> Tricia Barr
