PETITION AGAINST INCREASED ENROLLMENT AND TRAFFIC FROM HILLBROOK SCHOOL
We, the undersigned residents of Los Gatos, object in the strongest possible terms to Hillbrook School's request to increase its enrollment by 99 students (an almost 32% increase). We urge the Town to deny Hillbrook's application to modify its Conditional Use Permit to expand its student body and to deny an expansion in Hillbrook's summer programming. Hillbrook's traffic impact is already dangerously high and must be reduced. Neighborhood children walking, biking, and skateboarding to and from their local schools and residents running, biking, or walking already face significant physical danger from Hillbrook traffic. Higher levels of air and noise pollution from mostly non-resident vehicles also reduce quality of life in the neighborhood. We urge the Town to take steps to require Hillbrook to decrease both the number of vehicles and the span of time each day our neighborhoods are impacted. Hillbrook's traffic impact has increased in recent years to unacceptable levels and must be reduced for the safety of our children and the health and safety of all the Town's residents. We strongly urge the Town to reject Hillbrook's expansion plan.
