Vote No to 1300 Seat Middle School in Rosslyn

We oppose the School Board's recommendation to build a 1300-seat middle school as a neighborhood school at the Wilson School site. We oppose it because it will not create seats where they are most needed, it will be far from the communities it will serve, and will be located in one of the most urban parts of Arlington. It will require a large percentage of the students to be bused and will add recurring costs to the county. Further, this site fails to provide adequate green space for the large number of students it is intended to accommodate. We are also opposed to a process where feasibility studies and decisions on the use of the building would not occur until three weeks after the vote in November for issuance of the bond.

Why is this important?

We are concerned citizens of Arlington.

Reasons for signing

  • I own a penthouse unit at the Atrium (unit 1323) and the proposed oversized school is completely inappropriate for an area already suffering from high density development and acute traffic problems. There are alternative sites that should be pursued.
  • Hope they listen to reason,and build facilities where their is need and space
  • Our area is too over populated .kids need green space and clean air.
