November groundbreaking for Carter

So, after all this time, it's really starting to look like the county will build the Carter community a new elementary school. I've got to tell you, I never figured this would fly. But, whatever.

The Mayor and Superintendent (heh) Tim Burchett and his administration right now is talking to the school folks and some other people and whoever, and are hammering out a date to hold the official groundbreaking.

I believe the plan is not only hold a symbolic breaking (you know where the big to-do people wear the yellow hard-hats and use fancy shovels to twist a scoop of dirt around), but – from what I understand – they actually want to get real bulldozers out there and start real work.

Right now, the schedule is to hold it around the end of the first week of November. I've been given a date, but it's still a moving target.

The county will probably issue a spin release about it in the upcoming days. Or so.

The good thing is this: It will be more accurate than anything Martha Rose Woodward ever wrote.

The design is still about a month away from being able to get permits for the building. They can get a grading permit and start the dirt moving process, as long as the civil grading plan is almost finished.
