Public hearing on where to build new school

March 6, 2003

Albany -- The Dougherty County Board of Education wants to know where you think a new elementary school in Northwest Albany should be built. There are 8 to 10 sites under consideration, including this piece of land on Home Drive.

 The board turned down Home Drive after public objections, but the new school could still built there.

Dougherty County School Finance Director Robert Lloyd said "Home Drive is one of the sites we are currently looking at, because we own it. We must look at it, and compare it with other sites that are out there. Therefore it would be foolhardy not to look at it, but it may not be the ideal site for the school."

Sherwood Acres, Magnolia, and Lake Park elementary schools are all overcrowded, and the Board says the new elementary school needs to be open by the fall of 2005.

A public hearing will be held at 6 o-clock Thursday night at Robert Cross Middle Magnet School.
