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.

Latest robbery victim is 7-11


The 7-11 convenience market at 1552 Jefferson Boulevard was robbed Thursday night, and the suspect is still at large.

“A white male adult robbed the clerk, taking an undisclosed amount of cash, fleeing on foot,” Sgt. Nathan Steele of the West Sacramento Police Department told the News-Ledger today. The store is located in central West Sacramento on Jefferson close to 15th Street and Stone Boulevard.

The suspect was armed, although Steele declined to discuss further details due to the ongoing investigation.  No one was hurt during the robbery. When the crime was reported at about 9:50 p.m., there was a “pretty extensive search,” said Steele. Joining local police officers in the chase were a Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department helicopter and a Sacramento police K-9 team.

Steele said that there have been a string of robberies in West Sacramento targeting “liquor stores and gas stations.”

“Over the last two days, we’ve had five,” he reported.

So far, police don’t believe the 7-11 robbery was linked to the others, but they’re continuing to investigate all the crimes.
