Representatives from the Loch Raven Village and the Knettishall communities emerged from a meeting Friday with Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent Dallas Dance as strident as ever in their opposition to a plan calling for reopening a school at the site of the former Loch Raven Elementary despite assurances that a revised plan addresses some of their concerns.

“We heard their feedback and aside from just not doing the school, which would be their ultimate goal, we adjusted our thinking of what it should look like based on what they said to us,” Dance said in an interview after the meeting.

Community leaders said the changes — which involve expanding the proposed school to allow neighborhood children to attend and retaining some of its current community center functions — are not concessions but “self-preservation” moves to ensure the state funds the project, according to community member Jason Garber.
