    Great news. We can't and shouldn't continue to shut down schools in mature communities.

    Good to hear. Renovate it, expand it. Sustain our mature neighborhoods.

    Has it been mentioned what type of renovations are to take place? Although it might not be high on the priority list I personally would like to see the exterior upgraded aesthetically.

    Well since it looks like they are keeping it in the same location that fine, but I'm sorry, renovating it isn't enough. The solution is that they have to build a new school. One of the original plans was to build a new school on the same property and then once that one was built to tear down this structure. I still think that plan is the best and most cost effective. That way too, they can properly create an Elementary wing, Jr.High Wing and Sr.High Wing.
    LRT is our future, time to push forward.
