FEATURED ISSUE

Le Marchant St. Thomas School Site Design

The site design for Le Marchant St. Thomas Elementary School will turn the Annex playground into a parking lot.  Additionally, there will be a large drop off loop in front of the new school which will place the 70 percent of children arriving and leaving school in conflict with cars coming and going as out of area parents drop off and pick their children up.  The absence of public collaboration has produced a site design that is incompatible with the pedestrian-oriented nature of the surrounding neighborhood.   Please reach out to your elected official and request that that the design facilitators run one or more workshops which provide the public with the opporutnity to provide their input regarding the site layout.
