A sixty million dollar plan for a new high school in Columbia City will be at stake as a petition drive in Whitley County gets underway.
Those carrying blue petitions argue against the project saying a 60 million dollar price tag is simply too much for property tax payers in this day and age.
Those carrying yellow petitions say a new school must be built shortly to give students a 21st century education.
Friday was the first day petitions could be picked up at the Whitley County Courthouse and tomorrow is the first day they can be signed.
Code Blue Whitley County leaders told Indiana's NewsCenter they plan to knock on at least 9,000 doors during the petition drive.
Already on the streets of Whitley County, a group in favor of the project called Parents and Community for Education have put up signs.
All petitions are due in the clerk's office on July 7th.
