Put 10th school site in Mountain View

Why should Los Altos absorb the proposed 10th school site and/or a reconfiguration of Egan Junior High, Bullis Charter School and/or Covington School?

The city of Mountain View has acted irresponsibly by building and continuing to build high-density apartment buildings with no regard for the impact on resources (automobile and pedestrian traffic, water, sewage, parking, schools, police and fire service, etc.).

Time for BCS to choose: New school or two sites

Your coverage of the Los Altos School District’s 10th site effort gives the incorrect impression that only opponents have chimed in.

At the Dec. 11 meeting at which the decision to move forward with the effort was made, a majority of those speaking voiced support.

Open space is goal for San Antonio residents

I take issue with the statement made in the Town Crier’s editorial purporting that the San Antonio petition gathered support based on the assumption of a neighborhood school (“Questions over school site purchase,” Jan. 10).

The No. 1 issue for San Antonio is adequate parkland for the residents. From the petition background letter: “A school, with its accompanying blacktop, play structures and field space that neighbors can use after school hours and its multipurpose room that can be used for scouts, clubs and other civic uses, plus an adjoining public park, would be a defining feature of our neighborhood.” Nowhere in the petition was it mentioned that the school would be for a neighborhood school.
