Fighting Intensifies Over Open Space Repurposing
Stay tuned to Saturday's County Board meeting for another neighborhood demonstration about saving existing open space from development and/or repurposing..
Meanwhile, it's been 6 months since Abingson School planning began and APS is still engaged in fighting with Abingdon neighbors about paving the open space at Abingdon for more parking and vehicle turn-around space...to the point where the County Board is again getting involved. As the County Board had to get involved with Williamsburg, Ashlawn, and McKinley school construction.
At the School Board meeting this week almost nothing was said about education at Abingdon, discussion was all about traffic and parking.
How did we get to the point where we are spending a fortune on school buses that are almost empty, and another fortune building parking lots and turn-around space for SUV soccer parents who refuse under any circumstances to allow their child or children to ride a school bus?
More reason for a complete moratorium on New Urbansim before we are overwhelmed by in-fill.
