Well, if this isn't a great example of bad planning (on the part of the school, community, etc.) then I do not know what is.
"'Don't walk' is the warning Fairfield Police have issued to the 2,300 Fairfield Senior High School students who won't have bus service when classes begin Wednesday. Busing was eliminated for grades 9-12 in a budget cut after two levy failures since March.
No sidewalks were built along North Gilmore Road or Holden Boulevard when the $25.6 million school opened in 1997. The city doesn't require sidewalks in the area - a policy called outdated by at least one City Council member."
I wonder how much they spent to put in parking lots for the school. Oh well, those are so much more important than sidewalks or bus service.
