Wheatley School
Comments: Please do not demolish such a strong, capable building. True sustainability is about reusing the gems that have already been designed and built in this community.

This school could become quite a beautiful landmark of our community when combined with contemporary elements and rejuvenation.

This is what historic preservation is all about. Not just saving a bunch of buildings that all look the same, but saving the truly unique, great architecture from eras spanning our history - not just from the late 1800's.
