PTAC: Stanford General Use Permit (GUP) Sign Making Party

PTAC: Stanford General Use Permit (GUP) Sign Making Party – Help Needed To Get To the Finish Line 
 
PTA Council is hosting a Sign Making Party. Let’s make a joyful noise… On Tuesday Oct. 22, all school families are needed to attend this FINAL public hearing at PA City Hall including high school, middle school and especially elementary students.  The signs we make will be proudly displayed at City Hall. We have poster boards and need your idea and your artistic talents. Everyone welcome. Bring your own art supplies. Time and location coming soon. Questions? Email PTAC GUP Committee Chair at gabrielleconway12345@gmail.com.

Stanford GUP Update

We are united in this “full mitigation” message with PAUSD, the school board, our teachers, and our classified staff.
The Planning Commission is voting on the GUP at its  June 27 hearing (1:30 p.m.) – speak up for our students!
Why are we messaging the Planning Commission? The planning commission, in approving the GUP to the full county board, must find it won’t detrimentally impact the public welfare, health and safety (by county zoning ordinance). Full mitigation is necessary for the Stanford GUP to NOT detrimentally impact our students’ welfare (education opportunities), health (nurses, counselors) and safety (Safe Routes to Schools).
Please open your Click My Cause app and tap twice for “full mitigation”! (Tap 1: “act now”; Tap 2: “send message”). Your message will be sent to the county planning commission. If you don’t yet have the Click My Cause iPhone app on your iPhone, click here to download the free app to your phone. Tap “allow” to allow notifications – you must do this to receive your PTAC alerts.
Android users: please email the County Planning Commission, requesting they ensure Stanford “fully mitigates” the impacts of the GUP on our schools: planning.commission@pln.sccgov.org
