Letter: Sprawl at expense of neighborhoods?I will need to see concrete and convincing evidence of why Clara Barton Elementary or Hawthorne may need to be shut down.
How pathetic was the Feb. 8 Forum article and the “back-of-the-napkin plans” that were published. When you are talking about something as serious as replacing or repurposing schools, it needs to be backed with solid costs and information and not three options, one of which sounded like it was just whipped up “late in the afternoon.”
The article made it clear to me that there is already a slant toward new school construction over renovation.
I eagerly await more details and the opportunity for community input and involvement.
