High School Project Is Filled With Distortions

NOTE: The following article is a letter to the editor written by Dirk Taylor who has served on the school board's Design Advisory Committee and Community Advisory Committee.

There is a major debate underway in Mt. Lebanon over the proposed high school renovation. Throughout the debate, the school board has maintained that the current plan was developed through a "transparent process."

Unfortunately, most folks don't have enough practical construction experience and detailed knowledge of the high school to recognize the level of distortion and deception that has been used by the school board and project architects to fool the public into believing that their $113 million total reconstruction plan makes more sense than a well-designed renovation.

I commend Dirk Taylor for writing this letter to the editor. The school board is buying into a bad plan.
The Almanac arrived late in my neighborhood, but check out the petition at the top of page seven!

It is no secret that I am petitioning door to door about capping this renovation project at 75 million dollars. After Dirk Taylor's letter to the editor came out, people can't sign the petition fast enough. The community is definitely not evenly divided on this!!!!
