Avoca West Property

The District owns the property where Avoca West is located and the Board wants to see the property continue to support the neighborhood’s health and vitality. The Board also has a fiduciary duty and cannot allow the ownership of that property result in expenditures that would burden taxpayers or impede investing in important District programming.

The Board of Education wants to balance these priorities and has agreed the following principles should drive its decision-making regarding the use of the Avoca West property:

• Public use of the property should continue if at all possible;
• Natural, open space should be available on the property;
• The property should enhance or maintain the value of the surrounding homes;
• Dialogue with the community and neighborhood should be part of the decision-making process;
• The District should receive payment for the property that sustains fiscal health.
