“Developers have indicated the 14.1 acres at U.S. 31 and Ind. 32 may be the most desirable intersection in all of Hamilton County,” said WWS Supt. Mark Keen.
The acreage includes the administration building, football/track stadium, junior varsity baseball field and practice fields. At the end of the bid period, the board of school trustees will decide whether to accept the highest bid or decline all offers and market the land in a different fashion.
While the land sale funds could be used to finish the community stadium, Keen has highlighted other areas to use the money.
“It is our hope that we will raise all the funds for the stadium and can use the money from the land sale to lower our debt and reduce the tax rate,” Keen said. “Additionally, the land sale would have further impact on the tax rate as the ground would move from being non-taxable to taxable.”
