Email from Mayor Daines

Hi,

I met with the Chief Jensen about your concerns regarding U turns in front of Adams school.  

Technically it is not illegal to do a U turn there.  However, he will ask Officer Gleisberg, who works at all the schools doing programs with the 5th graders, to spend a couple of days at school pickup time visiting with parents about the danger of U turns with all the students crossing.  

I also talked to Paul Lindhart about the parking issues, and I will wait for your photos and then we can talk specifics.  Paul also said he was aware of a parking plan the city proposed to Adams some time ago, which would have moved all pickup/drop off to the parking lot.  Evidently they do that at Wilson.  He is going to look for the plan.  I think it would have cost some money because there needed to be some modifications to the lot to make it work, but if the school is really interested in addressing safety issues, maybe you should look at that as a long term solution.

I know you mentioned the Edith Bowen parking situation.  I asked my sister in law, and she said all teachers are required to be outside to help with after school pickup, and are assigned a certain area to monitor for safety issues.  So maybe we need to also have police work with the school administration and PTA on an overall plan to address all the issues in conjunction with possible signage.

Thanks.  

Holly H. Daines
