Transportation Demand Project
Project Description
Description
In March 2011 the Planning Commission approved an amendment to a Conditional Use Permit for Menlo School, allowing the maximum enrollment at the school to increase from 750 to 795 students. A condition of approval required Menlo School to implement a Transportation Demand Management program designed to reduce the number of single occupancy vehicle trips accessing the campus during weekday peak hours. Annual monitoring of the peak hour traffic is required to verify compliance with standards established in the Use Permit.
The standards established in the Use Permit are:

First year (School year beginning August 2011), a maximum of 711 trips in the morning peak hour and a maximum of 332 trips in the afternoon peak hour.
Second year (School year beginning August 2012) and all subsequent years, a maximum of 627 trips in the morning peak hour and a maximum of 302 trips in the afternoon peak hour.
Maintain a parking capacity utilization rate of on-campus parking lots for faculty, staff and students equal to or less than 86.5%.

Status – Summer 2013
The annual monitoring in spring 2012 concluded that the standard was met during the AM peak hour. However, during the PM peak hours the standard was exceeded by 238 vehicles. The annual monitoring in spring 2013 concluded that the standard during the AM peak hour was exceeded by 29 vehicles and the standard during the PM peak hour was exceeded by 133 vehicles. The parking standard was met in both 2012 and 2013.

The results of the spring 2012 monitoring was presented to the Planning Commission on June 27, 2012. The results of the spring 2013 monitoring will be presented to the Planning Commission later this year at the time Menlo School presents its annual Master Plan update.
