Policy Questions for Council Consideration:
Does the Council wish to sell a portion of Sunset Park to the School District so that the District can replace Sunset Primary School at is present location?
The West Linn/Wilsonville School district has indicated a need to replace Sunset Primary School. It has reviewed several options for replacing the school at a different location as well as replacement at its current location. After a review by a task force over the past several months, the School Board has agreed with the task force recommendation to replace Sunset School at its present location, provided that the size of the property can be increased. To facilitate this, the District has approached the City about selling a portion of Sunset Park to the District.
Section 46 of the West Linn City Charter requires the sale of any park land to be approved by the voters. Resolution 2010-08 directs staff to place this ballot measure before the voters at the May 18 election.
Staff recommends approval of Resolution 2010-08.
