Sale of land for new Tahoma High School takes another step forward
The ordinances request council approval of the Purchase and Sale Agreement of the land and seek appropriation approval for the transaction. The district would utilize district funds and a contribution from the state of Washington to meet the $9 million proposed purchase of 35 acres of the 156 acre site for a new high school development.
The district plans to have the new high school ready for students by 2017 and have requested closing by the end of 2014 so construction of the facility can proceed.
“We’ve reached a critical juncture,” said Superintendent Rob Morrow in a press release. “We need to move quickly toward closing of the sale by mid-November to avoid unnecessary and costly delay expenses and to keep the school’s opening on schedule.”
The legislation will be sent to the Budget and Fiscal Management Committee for discussion and possible action.
