Houghton School to Cypress Ridge

December 18, 2018

Last week I was reflecting on the decision we made to close and later demolish Houghton Elementary School.  This led to the sale and residential development that is now Cypress Ridge. Closing and demolishing a building can be a hard issue for a school district to manage.  They are often full of nostalgia and hold fond memories.  However, that sentimental longing for the past can hold us back from moving forward for the benefit of future generations.  I am thankful we moved forward as a community – we are benefiting from that decision today.
