School board OKs master plan for Monte Vista

Original post made on May 9, 2008

Efficient use of space. That's what the new master plan for Monte Vista High School is all about. The San Ramon Valley Unified School District board gave its approval last month to a plan that will eventually mean a consolidation of some space, while opening up more room for students, classrooms and storage.

Dear neighbors,

A new master plan for Monte Vista High School is an oxymoron. Where were the discussions of important issues such as impact on neighbors who have repeatedly suggested downsizing the population of students? Where were the discussions of larger structures on campus being a greater impact on the visual appeal of the surrounding neighborhoods. Where are options for funding the master plan published and will such funding be once again exceptional and selective in the same manner as the land purchase for the MVHS parking lot?

Does that cover your concerns?

Hey neighbors, I have an idea!

Why not build the SRV YMCA on the new portion of the campus at MVHS so we have all the abuse of Alamo neighborhoods in one location.

Now there is a master plan!

Laughing loudly,

Dear Alamo neighbors,

Where do you get off slamming Monte Vista High every chance you get! The many parents of current and past students appreciate Monte Vista for its value to our students' education and development as individuals. Long before our school was surrounded by houses, MVHS was providing educational excellence to students. Monte Vista didn't object to the building of your neighborhoods surrounding the school and you shouldn't constantly attack needed construction at the school.

Let's be fair!

Dear Mary and neighbors,

We should all be good neighbors!

MVHS has not been a good neighbor to Alamo neighborhoods and the reality of that failure is obvious. Students abused neighborhoods by parking on neighborhood streets. SRVUSD provided a parking lot that is an exceptional provision to other high schools and a further imposition of surrounding neighborhoods. SRVUSD supported expanding Stone Valley Road at MVHS to invite more commute traffic at the school and throughout Alamo.

SRVUSD and school policies have selectively favored Monte Vista over neighbors and the result is MVHS is an abusive neighbor.
