Comments: it figures that a mediocre school board wants to erase any evidence of a smart and progressive school board that planned buildings with a social and environmental conscience.
i find it depressing that our officials cannot spot a jewel when it is right in front of their eyes.
i just read that in the case of the hoffmann school it was admitted that a new school costs 20% more but they still voted for demolition. WHY?
we are loosing our meager stock of exceptional modern buildings and will be left with stuccoed foam monsters with quaint pitched roofs that go up in their place.
time to move.
