Halt hasty construction plans on Longfellow Garden site
Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD) has organized a new community meeting:
Cafeteria Project Meeting, Monday June 10th, 2013 6:30 - 8 p.m.
Please come and let your voice be heard.
We the undersigned petition the Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD) to hold a community meeting to review construction plans for a new Cafeteria building on the Longfellow Middle School garden site and delay the June 26th final presentation to the BUSD Board.
After inadequate notification to the community, the Longfellow Site Planning Committee hosted the first and only planned community meeting on May 14th where schematic design plans were made public to the 4 (four) attendees.
By displacing the garden the proposed design is in direct conflict with the BUSD Food Policy, and locating the cafeteria across Ward Street from the main school raises serious concerns about student safety and school-wide security. Parents, teachers, staff, administrators and community members are committed to the building and funding of both excellent cafeteria facilities and vibrant school gardens.
