New Paltz School District
Seeks Voter Approval for Land Purchase
Vote Date: Tuesday, April 10, 2012
The New Paltz Board of Education is holding a special vote on Tuesday, April 10th, regarding the purchase of land at 301 Route 32 South, adjacent to the Lenape Elementary School. The board finalized their decision to move forward with the vote at a public meeting on March 14th after reviewing results of a community survey, receiving input from community members and considering all of the circumstances regarding the purchase. Since other bidders are interested in the property, the board needs to act quickly.
The plot of land measures 22.4 acres and contains a residential home, detached garage, barn, pool and pool house. The board plans to subdivide the property following the purchase, retaining acreage adjacent to the school and divesting itself of the residential property and outbuildings. This reduces the net cost to taxpayers while providing the district with highly usable space.Click below for more information.
