When the original lines were drawn, the WO neighborhood was slotted for SV, not Parkwood. That's an oversight on the facilities committee, not the residents. Some speakers brought up the fact they were moving alone to SV. so the BOE should have proactively corrected it. There were MANY neighborhoods that campaigned to stay where they were, yet to only accommodation was given to the Millbridge neighborhood
WO could have easily pushed to go to Parkwood. They made a strategic choice not to do that.

From what I understand, they were very cohesive and presented themselves very professionally.

Can't recall any messaging from other neighborhoods


I believe they were the only neighborhood who had the developer show up at the meeting as well

No. Reason for that is because when the recession hit in 2009 Cuthbertson was ready to open and they knew it would cost to much to operate since the building process slowed down. So they re drew the lines to put kids in the school. I'm not sure if there was an over crowding issue in 2009. But in order to keep selling homes prices were lowered. So property was still bought high so couldn't drop housing prices and build on higher taxed lots. That's why the back section was started. That probably wasn't supposed to be started until the front was finished like every other neighborhood. If all was still strong back in 2009 I'm sure by now there would be some new schools. I used to live in Indian trail and went to Sun Valley and never had a problem there. Yes it's an old school that needs repairs. But aside from that the teachers and staff were great. I hear people talk about lower and poor homes in certain areas?? When I was in Indian trail the price points were good all over. Every area has lower prices. Every neighborhood had to adjust. Has anybody driven down near the Parkwood area? I've seen very nice homes on acres that are just amazing. And I'm sure they are expensive. I guess some get accustomed to a way of life and don't want to change. I've seen some so stubborn because they say oh ME and MY wife/husband could never live THERE but guess what? I know a few that had that attitude and lost their houses to foreclosure in the Rich neighborhoods and now bounce around renting. And yes they have to rent in neighborhoods they still can't afford because they are to proud. So they move every 6 months when they can pay their rent. Sometimes we all have to look outside of ME and MY and look at the BIG picture THEM (our kids) just my opinion. I have no ill will towards anybody here. Just wish the "oh Millbridge got excused" comments would stop.
puhlease stop with this. Millbridge did get excused... at least call it what it is. You won, go celebrate.

Yes, Millbridge was accommodated....on the original plan, part of Millbridge was to go to Parkwood. You spoke out against it and the BOE ACCOMODATED your request to stay in the Cuthbertson cluster....why is that so hard to admit. Accomodated is not a bad word

geeze... WO MADE THE CHOICE TO GO ALL IN WITH ANTI-REDISTRICTING... they could have easily fought to go to Parkwood. After careful deliberation they chose not to make that case.

Besides Millbridge, give me one other development that the BOE ACCOMODATED to either stay in their cluster or go to another cluster that they weren't slated for............there isn't any, the BOE made no subdivision concessions except for 1. so to say they would have easily been sent to Parkwood is wrong

Nothing else was put up as an amendment. Thelma and Louise could have easily raise their hand...offered an amendment to include Valhalla, etc but they did not. I bet board members would have approved small developments. It has to be put up as an amendment before it can be "accomodated".

Reading comprehension is hard huh? I said they could have easily FOUGHT... not that they would have won.
