Committee: don’t sell school land
NEWS-LEDGER — MARCH 21, 2012 —
A citizen’s committee charged with studying the real estate owned by Washington Unified School District has recommended that the district not sell off any “surplus” property at this time.
But the committee recommended that WUSD “evaluate the advantage of consolidation of site usage or joint facility usage to make any future liquidation easier.”
“For example,” it told district officials, “if the District Administrative Offices (at 930 Westacre Road) were moved from their current location, the city block they vacate would become more marketable for development. . . (T)he District Offices, the Yolo Education Center, and surrounding properties hold a higher potential for development based on the proximity to transit and city services.”
Committee members were Carrie Buchmiller, Dani Langford, Ron Morazzini, Karri Pina, Diane Smith, Matthew Wilkins, Patricia Flint, Larry Langford, Don Stauffer, Henry Walker and Dave Blake.
