Camden was an amazing little town with all the town hall, police fire, library, schools, Y, town landing in town and I thought the new high school should be where an old mill was right in town over a river. They built the new Y out of town too. I think the state did start looking at schools staying in walkable areas just after this came out so maybe my work has not been in vain.
Quoting from the end of the article: “An exchange student from Switzerland was interviewed recently regarding her experiences so far in the United States. She said it was so different, all this rushing around by car to do simple errands. In her village, people walk, ‘Things are so hectic here,’ she said, ‘We move a lot slower where I come from. My house is closer to everything there, and it’s new to always have to drive somewhere. We don’t even have school buses there.’”
