Neighborhood Voices on Future Use of
the San Rafael School Site

SECOND PUBLIC HEARING AT SAN RAFAEL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AUDITORIUM
(1090 Nithsdale Road)
THURSDAY, APRIL 17th, 7:00 PM

Thanks to all who made their interest known about the future of San Rafael Elementary School (SRES) and potential alternative uses for the site.  Forty-nine surveys were completed by attendees (out of over 120 in attendance) giving the Committee some information about community preferences.  

In order to get more complete information from a larger number of community members, the second Public Hearing will be held Thursday, April 17 at 7:00 pm in the SRES auditorium.  

At this hearing there will be additional information about the earthquake studies and another opportunity for everyone to rank their preferences for alternative uses of the property.  I urge you to attend and make your opinions count.  

The results of the rankings will be presented at the following meeting of the Committee, Monday, April 28, 7:00 pm in the PUSD Board Room.  

Please plan to attend this Public Hearing, and bring your neighbors.

Don Watson, Chairperson
San Rafael Elementary School 7-11 Committee

Adaptive reuse of the site potentially will introduce new impacts to the neighborhood and affect property values, good or bad. SRNA supports a cautious approach to this transition and a full understanding of zoning allowances.
