Belmont School Will Be Completed

It's already the costliest High School ever built, with over $175 million spent on it so far. It has been put on hold for the last 4 years due to it being built on top of a major earthquake fault and an oil field that is leaching methane and hydrogen sulfide gas. The plan as it stands now is to tear down 2 buildings that are directly above the fault and build 2 more elsewhere, as well as install pipes and monitoring systems to keep the toxic gasses in check.
