Elm Grove School property is a historical part of Oak Ridge, TN, The site of the 1st school when they built in Oak Ridge. I went there for 6 months then to the old Pine Valley School and then Woodland. The park that is there now is a memorial to those of us that grew up in Oak Ridge. I was gone from Oak Ridge for over 50 years flying all over the world in the military & airline transport pilot and it was great to see a few landmarks saved and not destroyed as in other parts of the world. DO NOT DESTROY !, Oak Ridges history. I come back to OR a lot and walk the Elm Grove Park since retirement. I'm 79 now and it keeps me fit. Capt. Smokey Slover Class 1957

There are plenty of alternate sites in Oak Ridge to build. Why not on one of the school lots?

I HAVE BEEN AT THIS PARK FOR MOST OF MY LIFE AND MY CHILDREN HAVE AS WELL AND MY MOTHER LIVES IN THIS AREA AND I DONT THINK PUTTING A SCHOOL THERE IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO CAUSE THIS PARK IS FOR THE CHILDREN WHO COME ALL OVER THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND IF THERE. IS A SCHOOL PUT THERE THE KIDS WHO NORMALLY WANT TO PLAY IN THIS PARK CANT DUE TO THE SCHOOL BEING THERE...THE SCHOOL NEEDS TO PUT ELSE WHERE

There is a better option. There is a. Holding already in existence that would better serve the preschool and preserve history.

I and my family have used this convenient neighborhood historical park for over twenty years. It should not be built on which would ruin many activities. Build the preschool on land that has already been cleared. This is a terrible idea and very unfair to the many people that enjoy this park.

I'm signing because I use the park to walk and for my grandkids to play. It is one of the nicest parks in Oak
Ridge. Just because we aren't one of the richest areas doesn't we should lose our park.
