Designing a New Elementary School at Thomas Jefferson Park
Update on Bus Plans for Columbia Pike
Sarah McKinley will provide a power point presentation about development plans for a new elementary school at TJ, which will serve the Patrick Henry school community. School and county officials have been meeting with community groups to work on designs for that site, including parking, parent drop-off, and massing the school on the parking lot on the western side of the Thomas Jefferson middle school and community center.
The site design, so far, envisions buildings that will serve as joint facilities for both schools as well as the larger community. It will also increase green space, including a new soccer field.
We will also have an update on the County’s plans for transportation on Columbia Pike.
