The site of the former Pinewood Park Elementary School will be sold to St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church. Board members unanimously approved the sale of the 3 ½ acre West Glenn St. lot for $55,137.01. Under terms set by the board for this transaction, proceeds from the property sale will be earmarked to pay bond debt.
Officials shuttered Pinewood Park and sent students to other area campuses in 2008, as the district underwent rezoning for new campuses under the 2008 bond construction project. The site of the former school did not fit with the district’s long term plans, according to Assistant Superintendent Lynn Marshall.
Two other local groups, Habitat for Humanity and the Deason Financial Group, also placed bids for the property – $50,025 and $37,500, respectively.
