board may take a stand on freeway
- Kyrene School Board members may ask for more scrutiny on the impact of the
proposed South Mountain Freeway on children in nearby schools.
Noting that four Kyrene elementary schools and one middle school are close to the Pecos alignment, the resolution cites concern that resulting air pollution, noise and traffic could harm children and learning. As currently written, the Kyrene draft resolution asks decision-makers to find an alternate route.
The board tabled the matter while it seeks legal advice on the type of language to use in the resolution, board President Rich Zawtocki said.
