HOA's decision to move school bus stop angers parents

By The Associated Press

ALPHARETTA, Ga. (AP) — A metro Atlanta homeowners' association's decision to move a school bus stop has drawn parents' ire.

News outlets report the Fulton County School District confirmed the bus stop for the Windward Pointe neighborhood had been moved outside the subdivision this school year, as the community's HOA says it won't allow buses.

Fulton County Schools spokeswoman Susan Hale says the HOA cited damage to the privately owned roads within the subdivision.

The new pickup location is a nearly half-mile walk from the previous location. Parent Jessica Musgrove says the trek is too dark and dangerous for children to make alone. Other residents said they've since seen other heavy vehicles enter the subdivision.

The HOA posted a statement on its Facebook page saying it's facing a $350,000 bill to repair the roads.
