Planning Director Gail Goldberg and child advocate Yolie Flores Aguilar discuss the movement to make schools more than just places to store kids for eight hours a day.

“If we do not plan for schools to be the joint-use centers of our neighborhoods now, we will be forced to address it later and to retrofit later. We do not have the luxury of single-use buildings that do not take advantage of all of their potential. It’s not just about land; it’s also about the roles these facilities play in enhancing the health of our communities.”
