A friend told me that the Trib just published a notice in the real estate section explaining that the school district had purchased a home at 3208 Greysolon Place perhaps for parking at Congdon Elementary. It was a hefty $230,000 price tag which is a fair amount to pay to level a house for asphalt. If this is for parking the District will need City Approval however with city councilors not much different than Roger Reinert this shouldn’t be a big problem even though the lot would be places in a residential zone.
My corespondent noted that the deal was closed in April and wondered why the announcement of the sale took so long to be published. I don’t know if the School Board discussed this sale but then the majority of the Board seems to have given the Administration authority to do such things without bothering to tell the board. Rubber stamping speeds things up.
This lot is approximately behind the home of my pro-Red Plan counterpart Mimi Larsen. Its nice to see that Mimi is putting her home’s selling price where her mouth was.
