Our View: D-428 land swap a prudent plan
The proposal for the DeKalb School District 428 to swap about 42 acres of property it owns near Huntley Middle School for about 34 acres owned by a developer near the new DeKalb High School is prudent, if not perfect.
The plan, presented publicly to the school board on Tuesday, would enable the district to accomplish three key goals: Trade an asset that it can’t use for one that it can; free the district from a pending financial obligation to a developer, and encourage residential development that officials say the district needs to ease the property tax burden.
On the first two items at least, we agree.
