�t. <br />i <br />HILLBROOK <br />SCHOOL <br />December 1, 2014 <br />Marcia Jensen, Mayor <br />Members of the Town Council <br />Town of Los Gatos <br />110 E. Main Street <br />Los Gatos, CA 95030 <br />RECEIVED <br />DEC 01 2014 <br />TOWN OF LOS GATOS <br />PLANNING DIVISION <br />RE: Hillbrook School— Appeal of Planning Commission Decision <br />Dear Mayor Jensen and Members of the Town Council: <br />We are writing on behalf of Hillbrook School (Hillbrook) with respect to its request <br />for an amendment to its Conditional Use Permit (CUP) that the Planning Commission <br />approved with modified conditions on October 6, 2014 (Project). We are very grateful <br />that the Planning Commission approved the school's request for 99 additional students. <br />However, we remain deeply troubled by the consequences associated with the Planning <br />Commission's imposition of a maximum daily 880 vehicle cap with accelerated <br />penalties. We believe that the Planning Commission made a material, quantitative error <br />by imposing an 880 hard cap instead of an average. The error was based on <br />misunderstood and /or misinterpreted data points in the record. <br />Therefore, on October 8, 2014, Hillbrook appealed the Planning Commission <br />decision on the grounds that the Planning Commission erred or abused its discretion <br />because (1) the modified conditions were not supported by data or substantial evidence <br />in the record; (2) the modified conditions could abridge Hillbrook's vested right to 315 <br />students; and (3) the modified conditions do not have the necessary nexus to the <br />project or its impacts, in violation of constitutional principles. <br />The following expands on the grounds for this appeal and establishes a fair, <br />appropriate path forward for the Town of Los Gatos (Town), the neighbors, and <br />Hillbrook. <br />-I- ATTACHMENT 1 8 <br />
