Letters to the editor...Cancellation of new school is good for town

Full Text

Dear editor, The cancellation of the proposed high school in Georgetown South should be beneficial to the population of Georgetown. Not only will this allow for the possibility of more funding to renovate Georgetown Disctrict High School, a task which has been needed for years, but it should also eliminate a major boom in Georgetown's population. Georgetown South has seen an extreme amount of expansion over the past few years, and although Georgetown will, no doubt, continue to grow, a new school would speed up this process immensely. A large boom in the population would lead to a large increase in the

amount of land development and cause even more stress in areas such as our already diminished water supply and the overcrowding of existing schools. By choosing to renovate and improve Georgetown District High School, instead of building a new one, the town can accommodate for a smaller increase of students in the future and still attract a manageable amount of people to our thriving community. Amanda Pettitt, Georgetown
