The Shelby County Board of Education's $2 million capital improvement plan involves some homeowners having to relocate and residents want to know how this developement could affect them.
The system has been working on the plan for the past two years. The concern centers around residents in the Dailey Park community and the need to better control traffic there.
FOX6 News contacted Superintendent Randy Fuller. He says there is no need to worry, especially about rumors the county was going to buy a lot of homes nearby.
"We want to be good neighbors…[we're] working hard to negotiate with these homeowners to secure this property," Fuller said.
Concern is over the development of a new traffic plan for Montevallo Middle School.
"We're looking at changing the traffic pattern. For years and years the traffic pattern has had buses and car riders crossing…had to drive through neighborhoods to get to point of demarcation. There was a lack of parking. We have an opportunity to change that," Fuller said.
Fuller adds that in order to makes those changes, the school system needs to purchase some property around the school.
The plan lists improvements at all three Montevallo schools and is paid for with funds generated from bond sales.
-Renovation of the teacher workroom and nurses station at Montevallo High School.
-Renovation of hallways and restrooms at Montevallo Elementary
The board is negotiating with about six homes in this area. If you have additional questions you should go to your local school administration or call the Superintendent Fuller at 205-682-7000.
