Special Announcements

Disputing rumors

It’s been reported by some that Nora-Northside Community Council, Inc. (NCC) Board of Directors supports a new middle school and the Washington Township Schools (WTS)’ petition for referenda scheduled for a community vote on May 5,  2020.  This is a serious misunderstanding which this memo seeks to correct.

The NCC Board at this time neither supports nor objects to the new school nor the referenda.  Yes, the Board is discussing land use details regarding the development of a new school on the parcel at the SW corner of 91st St./College Ave.  Such details would be needed should the referenda pass and WTS moves ahead with building the new school. Discussion of land use details does not imply in any way support of the development but is normal protocol followed with any developer with a proposed development plan anyplace in the NCC area of interest.  Continuing this land use investigation, WTS is scheduled to share transportation studies at the NCC Board’s regularly scheduled monthly public meeting on March 5, 2020, 7 p.m., Nora Library.

WTS’s presentation of referenda information is scheduled for NCC Board’s regularly scheduled public meeting on April 2, 2020, 7 p.m., Nora Library.

All interested members of the community are welcome to attend these public NCC meetings. No RSVP or reservations required.

Ruth Hayes, NCC President
