DMUSD says Rolf Silbert’s Plan #2 has “potential pedestrian traffic crossing the vehicular entrance to the school with the parking in the northwest” – a safety concern for them.
But compare DMUSD’s own school at Sage Canyon Elementary below, with Rolf’s Plan # 2 underneath it.
Aren’t they the same thing – except that Rolf’s Plan #2 has a convenient sidewalk all the away around the parking lot?
Both of the above solutions strike us as better than the front lot in the DMUSD plan – which has no sidewalk at all, so that all pedestrians leaving cars there have to cross either 2 or 3 lanes of traffic at the indicated crosswalks.
It makes you wonder – are DMUSD’s concerns real, or just excuses because they don’t want to tell the community that Rolf’s Plan #2 is a viable alternative plan that won’t be considered because they care more about getting the school built fast than right?
