HOOVER, AL (WBRC) -

On Thursday, parents in the Riverchase area met to discuss proposed rezoning.

Under the rezoning proposal, students who live in the Riverchase Country Club neighborhood wouldn't be affected.

But, kids living in apartments and condominiums off Riverchase Parkway East near Valleydale Road would be transferred from Riverchase to Greystone Elementary.

Some parents believe that's too far.

"The main concern is about the cost to parents. You're looking at a long commute, so you're looking at increased gas in a family budget or as I mentioned we still have bus fees before the board that is waiting to be approved by the justice department," Monica Dobbins.

Parents plan to express their concerns to school leaders at the September 8th school board meeting.
