When the Mays Chapel planned unit development was approved by Baltimore County, part of the agreement was that there was to be a school built as part of the project. Since it is sorely needed now, the county should build a school that serves the area. It has been many years since this agreement, but the county hasn't fulfilled its promise.
There are many children who are living in the area considered Mays Chapel. While it is true that one of the closest residential areas is a retirement community, that should not affect where a school is located.
People in the Mays Chapel area can still walk around the school grounds if they wish. The presence of a school in the area would not affect the natural beauty of the surroundings.
