This post is getting alot of comments over at the FCBLOG. I thought I would put it up here in case you haven't seen it yet. I have requested specific details on the expansion from the City, but have yet to hear from them. I will post those as soon as I recieve them. I also want to make clear that I don't condone "not standing up for your rights", as I was acused of over at he FC, but I ask that you take a step back and not react to the stiuation with out the facts. God knows the people in this town tend to be a bit reactionary.
Here it is:
Not sure if any of you Sierra Madreans have noticed the signs on west side of Michillinda protesting a proposed expansion of Alverno High School. I am not clear of the extent of the actual expansion but it does include a soccer field. I have requested the details of the project through the City’s web site, however until those are available I would appreciate any facts that you have regarding this project.
I also thought it was quite ironic that the school across the street, La Salle, just won their court case on their expansion last year. The neighbors sued the school for a variety of reasons. (actually it turns out it was for the lighting)
“We were all vindicated,” Little said Friday. “It was not a surprise to me or any of us. The judge rules on the law.”
Sounds like it was a frivolous law suit, and I just hope that the people of Sierra Madre don’t repeat this type of behavior, wasting taxpayer dollars on attorney fees because they can.
