SEPT. 27, 2017: As part of the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the proposed Gird Road site, BUSD has announced holding a special board meeting on the evening of September 28 to discuss the schematics for building another brand new 1500-student high school and performing arts center. You will want to carefully READ the info on this meeting and, if you can, attend the meeting. BUT NOT AT THE EXPENSE OF THE CEQA WORKSHOP ON SATURDAY. The BUSD Special Board Meeting on September 28 will start at 5:30 PM and will be held at at BUSD’s brand new 350-student high school in Bonsall 7350 West Lilac Road.
To learn more about the EIR process (under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), please DO ATTEND a CEQA Workshop on September 30. This will give us the tools we need to navigate this process. IF YOU CAN ONLY ATTEND ONE OF THESE MEETINGS THIS WEEK, CHOOSE THE CEQA WORKSHOP on September 30! (NOTE: LOCATION HAS BEEN CHANGED TO Harding Community Center, 3096 Harding Street
Carlsbad, CA 92008.)
The proposed location on Gird Road has lost at the ballot box fully five times. BUSD has been deficit spending for the last six years and it projects only 352 students enrolled in its high school by 2019/2020. So why does it keep rolling forward attempting to build this massive development so far north in the school district and so close to Fallbrook High School? Why does it ignore such long term and organized community opposition?
The Board has three members who refuse to commit to another site (Coen, English and Riddle) and two members committed to keeping within budget and finding a site for a high school (long term) in a location the community will support (Olson, Tucker).
If you love North County San Diego and Fallbrook and hate fighting poorly planned development, we need you!
