July 19, 2018

SUBJECT: Proposed or Planned Housing Development

To Whom it May Concern:

In response to your request, I hereby inform you that the Rockford Public School District takes a neutral position on any proposed or planned housing developments within our district boundaries.

Relative to the Orchard View PUD in Cannon Township, we understand the Kent County Road Commission has reviewed a Traffic Impact Study prepared by Wade-Trim dated May 9, 2018. It is our position to rely on appropriate organizations relative to their areas of expertise and we defer to the opinion of the Kent County Road Commission on their opinion as to the traffic impact resulting from the Orchard View project.

As a public school district, it is our responsibility to provide a free appropriate public education (FAPE) to all students who reside within our school district.Thank you.

Sincerely,

Michael S. Shibler, Ph.D.
Superintendent of Schools
