Do we really want to allow an alcohol-serving banquet hall (at the top of a difficult-to-access hill) that generates revenue for the tax-exempt school year-round, creating incentives for the school to rent it out as often as possible while nearby residents bear the brunt of the extremely dangerous driving conditions that will be created?
The two letters by supporters of FSHA fail to even mention any aspect of this expansion, or the documented inherent danger in the treacherous access roads to FSHA.

Protect LCF sounded the alarm and performed a public service as FSHA attempted to use its political influence with city officials to “fast track” approve a $50-million dramatic expansion of its size and scope of activities in what was originally described as a modest rehabilitation. Protect LCF has educated our community and its leaders to real concerns and issues surrounding the FSHA expansion.
We are all for educating the girls and modernizing the campus. Let’s stay focused on the real issues!
