The cost of portables can run around $170,000 installed each. We will need 5-7 portables for a total cost of $1.5 million dollarsl
The Marinwood Village project by Bridge Housing was initially estimated to bring 150 students which will definitely trigger expansion of our schools. Through the "magic" of statistics they revised their estimates to 60 students. Bridge Housing "school impact fee" is estimated to be only $200,000 total.
For this reason alone, the Marinwood Village project should be halted until an equitable financing scheme can be found that will not erode the funding of our Dixie School district.
We must insist that the supervisors get the math right on school funding when planning for non-profit developments.
Our children's education, our community is not "for sale".
Save Marinwood. Our community. Our future.
