   The application for a proposed charter school on Perrine Road inched closer to a vote Feb. 23.

Testimony for the applicant, 12 P & Associates, landlord of the Princeton International Academy Charter School, concluded during the almost three-hour meeting held in the Senior Center auditorium in the municipal complex on Route 522.

More than 100 members of the public attended the meeting.

The K-5 Mandarin immersion school would serve 170 students from the communities of South Brunswick, Princeton and West-Windsor Plainsboro if it is allowed to open.

The school plans to expand to fifth grade and around 250 students in four years, according to the testimony.

   Applicant attorney Edward Boccher called on traffic engineer Elizabeth Dolan to continue her testimony regarding the impact the school may have on Perrine and Schalks Crossing roads.
