When I came to GRTS in 1986, a high berm pierced by a rather narrow entrance separated the college campus from the busy East Beltline highway. The berm was installed to shield the campus from traffic noise, but some saw it as symbolic of the school’s desire to be separate from the community. Later, the main campus entrance was widened and the berm was lowered. In my mind at least, the new landscaping pictured positive developments in the school’s vision of its constituency.
I’m concerned that the berm is being rebuilt . . .
