Next week, the school board discusses the Patterson Ranch development proposed to rise near Coyote Hills Regional Park.
Many environmentalists have made peace with the development since its been slimmed down to about 500 homes, but the school district is still concerned because it’ll add a lot more students to the Ardenwood district without providing for a new elementary school.
Earlier this year, the City Council professed its love for building a new school at Karl Nordvik Park.
But it turns out, a school won’t fly at the park because of a PG&E power station there and underground power lines. Turns out you can’t build directly above the underground power lines, so the district is once again hoping for a new school at the Patterson development site, possibly west of Ardenwood Boulevard.
