The city of Ra'anana has come up with a plan to solve two pressing problems in one hit, reports http://www.local.co.il. The city has decided to build a new, NIS 5 million music center near the city center, leaving the current music center in Kiryat Sharett to the religious boys' high school that began using the facility on a temporary basis in September. The idea will solve both problems: what to do about the old music center, which has grown too small for the number of students enrolled there, and where to house the new religious boys' high school, at least for the next few years. According to the report, the city has approved an extraordinary budget of NIS 5m. to build the new music center on municipal land on the corner of Haheil and Etzion streets. Construction should be completed by the beginning of the 2008-2009 school year. A municipal spokesman said the location, close to the city center, would be more accessible for many residents than the current music center. The report also said that moving the music center would free up the old building entirely for the religious boys' high school, which, for lack of an alternative location, began holding two 7th grade classes there this year. Mayor Nahum Hofree is reportedly considering building a permanent religious boys' high school in the planned new "2015" neighborhood to be built in the north of the city in the next few years.
