We usually hear about uproars when big-box stores want to move into neighborhoods.
In Lakewood, the issue isn't a store. It's a school.
Saturday, supporters gathered to update residents.
Earlier this year, the school won a grant for $13 million from the Colorado Department of Education to build a new pre-K through 12th grade school.
It would be in Lakewood's Hutchinson Park area.
But residents say the new school will overload traffic in the neighborhood
Both sides are still trying to work out a compromise.
"For about 14 years the school has been relocating to different less than optimal sites," Rocky Mountain Deaf School board member Ryan Commerson said. "We need a permanent home and this would be our permanent home."
But, the school will have to wait to break ground.
Right now, it's only zoned for an elementary school, not pre-K through 12th grade.
The rezoning is being contested.
A group is circulating a petition to bring the issue before Lakewood voters this fall.
