Our Own Growth Study?

I found this story out of Cheatam County interesting. Note: I am not passing this story along for the discussion brought up by Commissioner McCarver as much as I am illustrating that the school board is engaging in some kind of “growth study.” 

The study, which will be conducted by Hastings Architecture, will look at growth issues in the north cluster as well as adding a career and technical education center at Harpeth High School in the south cluster.
We all know that the Pleasant View area is a high growth area, and it appears that their school board is taking steps to have a consulting group study the growth to help provide them recommendations.
My interest is looking at a study for our County. It may sound cliché, but it is time we think “outside the box.”   


  1. They are also paying a fortune for this "service" to learn what they already know: that the northern end of their county is growing. Good use of limited budget? NO!
