Walk around the Alexander Dawson School campus and you get the feeling its students are rarely left wanting. School officials, however, do want more. Forty-two thousand, nine hundred and ten square feet to be exact. They are not gonna get it. Despite pumping hundreds of thousands of dollars over the last few years in attempts to gain approval and making numerous concessions to the plan, Boulder County Commissioners denied Dawson’s application to increase the size of the campus by about 25 percent, proving that they hold dear the rural aspects of the outlying sections of the county. We love schools, but we also love open space. That being said, it’s nice to see consistency from commissioners (see No. 1).
What’s Next: We’ll wait to see if some of those costs get passed on to the tuition bills of the K-12 students at the posh school.
