Despite the economic recession, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro School system is continuing to move forward with the plans for the 11th elementary school. The new elementary school is proposed to be built in the Northside neighborhood between Caldwell and McMasters streets (this is very close to downtown Chapel Hill). The first step in the development process, the concept plans, were submitted to the Town of Chapel Hill in December. School Board Chairwoman Lisa Stuckey cautiously acknowledged that plans could change. The school is tentatively scheduled to open in the August of 2011. I will continue to discuss the progress on the development of this school. I wonder what they will name this one. . . Any ideas?
