We Oppose Proposal C and Want Proposal D1 for Rezoning our School District
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
We are concerned with where the new maps are headed in regards to our Belle Hall Elementary community. We feel that all our Belle Hall children need to be zoned for Moultrie Middle School. I believe that we spoke effectively at the last meeting but our concerns and voices were not heard prior to making the D1 and D2 maps.
We oppose Proposal option C sending all of the Belle Hall Elementary community to Laing with no choice for Moultrie. We support Proposal D1 at this time but want to see an alternate option that keeps all of Belle Hall together to attend Moultrie.
Here are some of our main concerns:
1- We handed you a petition with about 850 signatures obtained in 3 days from going door to door in our communities. We did this because we Oppose Proposal Option C and this is stated in the petition. Please hear our voices as your seats are meant to represent everyone in Mount Pleasant, not just the areas that you reside.
2- The traffic flow down Longpoint to allow our community access to North Mount Pleasant now sees over 18,000 cars per day and we are then forced to sit at a long light onto 17. Here the traffic backs up so much we frequently sit through several cycles of the light prior to even getting onto 17. We feel attending Moultrie and using 526 is preferable for traffic patterns.
3- We believe that rezoning is having difficulty due to capacity issues at Moultrie and Lucy Beckham. They are too small to accommodate all of us in 29464 that would like to attend. In the past, Belle Hall has already been zoned to attend Moultrie and this is one of the reasons why we choose Moultrie.
4- The enormous growth potential of the Whitesides district and knowing there is the possibility of building 477 new homes in the outlined area would contribute to overcrowding at Moultrie.
We respect that the Board is only zoning for Middle School at this time, and want to share with you our clear opposition to Proposal C. We feel that the board seemed to be in favor of this option and we are truly concerned.
We choose Proposal D1 at this time, but are pleading with you to make another map that includes all of BHE to go to Moultrie.
Thank you-- Belle Hall Elementary Community
