As a concerned resident, I joined a committee of responsible citizens to learn everything there is to know about the Woodland High School project. I checked the most important issues and concerns expressed by some, which were mainly related to the location. It is my conclusion that the site for the new high school is the best location available. There are moments we can step up to the plate and help make Woodland a better place to live -- this is certainly one of those moments. The timing for a new school is highly favorable because the interest rate on the bond is at an all-time low and the building costs are the lowest we have seen in many years. The new high school will be such an improvement for all students and will also attract businesses and good families to the Woodland area. Say “yes” on April 17 for one of the most important investments in our community.
