The Tenleytown Historical
Society takes seriously the responsibility for
oversight of historic sites in its area and the
possible impact of changes to the land, buildings
and the area as a whole. Current issues include
GEORGETOWN DAY SCHOOL (GDS)
GDS purchased the Safeway and Volvo sites in 2014. It is the School's expressed intent to unite its campuses by building on the Safeway site to accommodate its lower and middle schools. Plans for the Volvo site include a mix of residential and commercial uses.
Tenleytown Historical Society has, since these plans were announced, monitored the School's proposals in an effort to ensure that they do not diminish or block the historic viewshed from Fort Reno. For the latest information go to http://www.gds.org/Page/About/GDS-Planning/Campus-Planning
