Two Elementary Schools on One Campus in Richland

Tonight the Richland City Council unanimously denies appeals from concerned community members about putting two elementary schools on one campus in a couple of years.

Two months ago the Richland Planning Commission voted to operate both the Sacajawea school and the Marcus Whitman school from the Sacajawea campus while Marcus Whitman is renovated during the 2015-16 school year.

Whitman would operate out of the current Sacajawea building, while Sacajawea would be in its new building, scheduled tio open in August of 2015.

Some neighbors are concerned about the amout of people and traffic this could cause.
