The second of two public meetings to discuss the rezoning of some Columbia County elementary schools will be held tonight at 7 p.m. at Lewiston Elementary School on Hereford Farm Road.
As currently proposed, the rezoning plan calls for moving about 430 pupils to the new school behind Grovetown High from the current Lewiston Elementary zone. The zoning also shifts about 390 pupils out of Cedar Ridge Elementary with most going to the new school and some attending Euchee Creek Elementary. Euchee Creek Elementary will lose 66 pupils to the new school, but it will gain 130 from Cedar Ridge.
Forms will be available for those wishing to comment on the rezoning plan. Comments on the plan also can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new school’s proposed zone will cover pupils living south of Columbia Road from Euchee Creek to High Meadows Drive and some living south of Euchee Creek to William Few Parkway. That area includes the Ivy Falls, Misty Woods and High Meadows neighborhoods.
Also attending the new school might be pupils living north of Wrightsboro Road from Baker Place Road to William Few Parkway and east on William Few Parkway to Chamblin Road at Interstate 20. In addition, the school might take pupils living north of Wrightsboro Road from Euchee Creek to Harlem-Grovetown Road and I-20 at Horizon South Parkway.
School board members intend to approve a rezoning plan by Dec. 14, according to a timeline provided by the school system’s central office.
Information, including maps, on the rezoning is available online at www.ccboe.net.
