UPDATE: Note that the list below aren’t technically “conditions”, but stated items that the city and school board agreed to work toward prior to either body’s vote. Here’s a direct link to the resolution so you can see for yourself!
Decaturish is reporting that the Decatur school board met this morning and approved the Decatur Annexation Master Plan, noting four items the city and school board agreed upon. Lots of info in the Decaturish post, but here’s a quick summary of the items listed in CSD’s resolution that they will “continue to be in conversation, and discussion and collaboration between the two governing bodies” to get you started…
- Identify a location for a new school – likely an elementary school
- The City Commission will “encourage future commissions to be cautious about rezoning commercial areas as residential areas”.
- The City Commission will “put a General Obligation bond on the ballot in 2015 so the school system pay for expanding its facilities”
- CSD will not have to “provide educational services to the newly-annexed areas until 18 months after the effective annexation date”
