We just learned that the Toll Brothers deal for the 85 townhouses on the Doyle-McDonnell Nursery property has been tabled – thank you Caroline O’Halloran for the update! Now we learn that T/E School District has decided to vote on whether to acquire the 13 acres through eminent domain. Special meeting — Thursday, Nov. 14, 6 PM (see notice from District website below).
I do not understand … In light of the possible acquisition of the Doyle property, why would the District NOT completely review the high school expansion plans? You read the District notice and it clearly states that the acquisition would not impact the timeline for the high school expansion plans. Why not? With a $40 million price tag, ALL options should be thoroughly reviewed and considered! I’m all for the purchase of the Doyle property but ONLY if it’s part of the expansion plans. This is taxpayer money!
