That Burning Smell? Mint Hill’s Reax to New CMS Plan

Just wait. Folks in Mint Hill will have their hair on fire over CMS’ latest boundary plans for the new “Mint Hill” high school. All of the options make the new school more of a “Plaza Road” centered school than one populated by Mint Hill area kids.

The intent of Mint Hill leaders was for the new school to function as a Mint Hill school in the same way Butler is primarily a Matthews school. Independence, they hoped, would be shifted to more a middle-ring school with everything between Garinger and Hwy. 51. Hasn’t worked out that way in this latest round of proposals from CMS staff, all of which stretch Indy’s zone all the way to the county line.

    Those boundries seem pretty fair to this Mint Hill native. Sure, it’d be nice for ONLY Mint Hillians to get to go there, but until these towns have their own school system, this will be as good as it gets.

    The confusing thing is that the school happens to sit on the little jut of MH that is outside of 485. Virtually all of the rest of the town is in Indy, inside 485.

    If CMS just would not call it ‘Mint Hill’ high school, it may not upset Mint Hill. Being in the Independence High School zone is the kiss of death for property values.
