Fielding a debate on District 428 land swap
DeKALB – Dozens of DeKalb residents braved the cold Monday to voice their opposition to DeKalb School District 428’s plan to trade Kiwanis Park for land near DeKalb High School owned by ShoDeen Construction.
“It’s a unique facility that affords over 700 children, including others in the community ... a place to recreate,” said Bessie Chronopoulos, the former DeKalb mayor who lives near the park, which is next to Huntley Middle School.
If the swap goes through, the district will receive 41.86 acres near the high school that can be used for future expansions. ShoDeen eventually plans to build homes and commercial outlets on the land.
