The YMCA’s looking to lock in a new home at the location where the Roosevelt Middle School sits. The district will soon replace the aging building next next to the current middle school and is looking to sell, lease or trade the land.
The YMCA bid $1.5 million for the property. The district estimated the land could be worth as much as $4.5 million. At a Wednesday meeting, the district approved a summary appraisal for the piece of property.
4J School board member Anne Marie Levis says this is just about making sure all of their numbers are accurate.
“We love the Y and want to work with them, but we have to be responsible stewards,” said Levis.
