Opinion: Cottage Farm school would mean illogical redistricting

BROOKLINE

Like many others, I oppose building a ninth elementary school at the proposed Cottage Farm site for the unacceptable loss of green/open space and damage that would be done through a hostile eminent domain procedure to the Massachusetts Association for the Blind’s Ivy Street School.

There is a third and equally compelling reason why the Cottage Farm site is a wrong and illogical choice for a ninth school: its location. This far-northeast periphery of the town does not, in fact, have excess student density, particularly since both schools serving this area have been “expanded in place”.
