Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy opened its doors to the public on Thursday night, but only a couple of residents accepted the invitation.
The open house was part of an outreach effort designed to inform neighbors who live near the school about the planned campus renovation, which includes a 3 1/2-story parking structure and a larger auditorium.
Hera Benlian, who lives on Inverness Drive, studied the renderings of the plan that were on display Thursday night. She said it looked like a big project. "I didn't realize the scale of it."
A mother of three daughters, Benlian said she is worried about construction trucks driving up the winding roads to complete the work.
"I'm scared for my kids," she said. "I want to make sure the roads are safe."
Members of the group Protect LCF say there are still many unknown factors about the expansion — such as how a planned traffic management program would be enforced.
