Parents hear proposal for new school in Arrowcreek

Parents are voicing their opinions about a new efforts to ease overcrowding in Washoe County schools. They heard a proposal for a new middle school in Arrowcreek on Forest Service land across from the Hunsberger Elementary. They raised issues from property values to traffic, especially along evacuation routes, to flooding and fires. But some say overcrowding is the biggest concern of all, and it can’t be fixed without another school. Public comment is open on the plans until the end of the month.
