The meeting takes place on Monday, Nov. 11, at 7 p.m. in the media center of the school, located at 3448 Sandy Plains Road.
The meeting has been organized by the Mountain View Elementary PTA, School Council, and Foundation.
JoAnn Birrell, District 3 Cobb County Commissioner, and David Banks of the Cobb Board of Education will be in attendance. Ray Reid, General Contractor for the Proposed Rebuild Site Map, will be available to answer questions, according to Karin DeAmicis, one of the parent organizers.
DeAmicis has been a part of Rebuild Mountain View, which is lobbying the Cobb Board of Education to designate the Northeast Cobb school for a replacement facility using funds in the upcoming SPLOST IV collection period.
The group also has a Facebook page.
Mountain View parents have been lobbying the school board in recent weeks for a new school, citing the mold in the building, wet floors that accumulate due to leaking roofs and traffic safety along the busy Sandy Plains Road corridor.
Two weeks ago Banks recommended that Mountain View be one of the two elementary schools to be replaced with new SPLOST funds. He told East Cobb Patch he has a new site in mind for Mountain View but said he couldn't publicly identify it now.
The board may decide as early as December on the two new elementary schools, according to a report in The Marietta Daily Journal today.
Also lobbying heavily for replacement schools are parents at Brumby Elementary in East Cobb and Harmony Leland Elementary in Mableton.
Banks also has proposed consolidating Eastvalley and Powers Ferry elementaries, which hasn't gone over well in those East Cobb school communities.
Here's the official agenda for the Mountain View ES town hall meeting, according to DeAmicis:
- Rebuild Presentation (Traffic and Parking, Structural Deficiencies, Safety of Students and Staff, Health Concerns, Maintenance Funds)
- Presentation of Proposed Rebuild Site Plan
- Public Comments
