Well my take on this whole tract k has nothing to do with lely high school,it does have to do with the land and why it was deeded.I dont know if a high school is the best thing for this property but i do know a solar farm is not the answer.The cost of this project and the savings to the schools just dont add up.The panels should be installed on the school and not on tract k this property was meant for the people of this island and not the chosen few to profit from it..I havent heard from anybody about the cost to maintain these panels and how long they would last i have heard it will cost 8 million and a savings to the school of 100 grand a year 80 years is a long time to break even .Also will these panels withstand a category 3,4,5 hurricane or will they be thrown into the houses that surround tract k and who will pay for the damage and replacement of these panels from a hurricane.Tract k should be a passive park until we can decide whether we need a school ,park,ball fields but not a solar farm.we also have bald eagles nesting and im sure when we run out of building lots the burrowing owls will be looking for a place to nest.lets make the right choice and not rush into this solar project.
