So it begins...

The Daily Herald reported today that several cities are taking steps to potentially put a district split question to voters. Essentially, this would be Option 4 from the ASD/MGT presentation. Key takeaways:

  • Eagle Mountain, Saratoga Springs, Cedar Fort and Fairfield appear to be intent on putting the issue to the voters. This makes sense because they are the ones desperate to build new schools, and it has become obvious that waiting for all of Alpine School District to agree to pay for the new buildings is wishful, but unrealistic thinking.
  • Lehi, American Fork, Alpine, Cedar Hills, Highland, and the small part of Draper that has been part of the district are all moving forward to study the issue and potentially ask voters to approve. This post from a Lehi City Council member has more information. Also see this Lehi Free Press article
  • Orem, Pleasant Grove, Lindon, and Vineyard are watching the situation carefully as noted in this post from Lindon Mayor Lundberg, and this recorded meeting with Orem and Lindon city councils.
