A community evolves over time and changes itâ¤™s needs. The community that I live in was established in the 1960â¤™s and many of the original owners are at an age where they need to sell their property for something more manageable. With this, younger families are coming in. We have four schools in our neighbourhood, and a few years back the school board wanted to shut down one of our schools. I was part of the group to keep it open knowing that there were changes coming in the demographics of our community. We were successful and now the school that they wanted to close is near capacity.
