Martinez resident Shannon Jones is pleased with a proposed middle school rezoning that would send her child to Evans Middle School next year.
Jones, who lives in the Fox Run subdivision, has a son in the eighth grade at Columbia Middle School. Her younger son will begin the sixth grade next year at a school much closer to home.
In fact, Jones said her commute time will drop from 12 to five minutes.
“I’ve been doing it for three years,” Jones said of her drive to Columbia Middle. “And I’m done.”
