Lincoln County School District and the City of Waldport are entering into negotiations about the ownership of an 11.47-acre parcel of land (the site of the former Waldport High School that will be converted to open space use once structures on the property are removed) and other district-owned properties within the city of Waldport.
City Manager Nancy Leonard and LCSD superintendent Tom Rinearson are leading the negotiations, which are in the initial phases.
“Our hope is that we can come to a mutually agreeable solution that will benefit the citizens of Waldport, the school district and the city,” Rinearson said. “Neither party has committed to any groups or individuals about future design or usage. However, Nancy and I both appreciate the conversations happening in the community about all the possibilities.”
Negotiations are confidential. A public announcement will be made if an agreement is reached.For the complete article see the 11-20-2013 issue.
