I won't belabor the issue for those who don't think it's a big deal, but Wake will appeal the rejection of the parking lot at Broughton High School.
Mike Burriss, assistant superintendent for facilities, said the school asked his office to contest the Raleigh Planning Commission's decision. The Raleigh City Council will hear the request to turn Broughton's front lawn into a parking lot on Tuesday.
If this week's hearing was any indication, it could get pretty emotional when the alumni turn out on Tuesday. The meeting is at 1 p.m. in the Council Chambers, 222 W. Hargett St.
