We object to the draft map proposed because: 1. The plan is in violation of the primary criteria of both capacity and projected enrollment as defined by the county planning department. It results in over capacity at Cogburn Woods Elementary (CWE) DAY 1 and results in more overcrowded than current boundaries. This plan makes our current situation of overcrowded worse not better! CWE is the ONLY school with significant overcrowding with the new plan. The Projected Enrollment for 2009-10 is 954 yet State Capacity is 850 (101 OVER)! ALL OTHER 13 schools will be UNDER CAPACITY from a range of 20 students up to 166 (Manning Oaks). 2. The plan is inconsistent and violates the Primary Criteria of Geographic Proximity. Many neighborhoods will be travelling further to their school under the draft proposal. Brookshade, Wyndham Farms, Devonshire Farms, Oakstone Glen, and Bethany Green are all clearly closer to CWE. Crooked Creek is further away from CWE than any of these neighborhoods. This is in violation of the primary criteria of Geographic Proximity Also, neighborhoods North of CC are further away from Summit Hill (SH) than CWE, but aligned to SH yet CC is not. It separates Crooked Creek students from all neighborhood groups to the north and west, which have been our historic neighborhood groupings. 3. The plan is in violation of the secondary criteria of traffic pattern issues as defined by the county planning department. It brings New Traffic to Highway 9 (HW 9), areas west of HW 9, and secondary roads around CWE. HW 9 already has traffic issues, by routing more traffic from students East of HW 9 onto HW 9 will make the situation worse. Deerfield Parkway is a 4 lane road and can easily handle traffic from its neighborhoods to Manning Oaks/Cumming Street, rather than to route traffic back up HW 9 â
