Excuse Me?

The Old Blacksburg Middle School Transition Committee has just announced that they are seeking public input on how best to use the 20-acre site that the previous Blacksburg Middle School is falling in on, and kicking it off will be a design contest.

There will be two public input meetings – one from 4-6pm and one from 7-9pm on May 14th at the Blacksburg Community Center on Patrick Henry Drive.  The first phase of the contest will run  August – November 2008. 

I don’t know, there’s just something off here, in my opinion.  We’ve battled for years on what to do, now we’re having a design contest?  What are we designing for?  We haven’t decided what we want to put on the property, and so based on some public input meetings we’re going to come up with concept ideas we can get behind?  Aren’t we putting the cart before the horse?

Thanks to MontVA.com for the picture.
