Re: “Durant to Leave T-S, Launch New Mag

We (A committed group of Clark district neighbors, 2 city council men and the city manager) have been working for 20 months with the city on the aquisition of the Jefferson school site. The Eureka City School district had accepted an offer to buy, we went forth with a grant application for the playground and an expensive feasibility study, Eureka City School district blindsided us and took an offer (for less money) from CR to purchase Jefferson School . This is a contentious issue, we started with public scoping meetings at the Warfinger to see what the people of the community wanted and needed at this public site. We, the citizens of Eureka have paid for this property once through the assesment as a school and are even willing to pay for it again. We were the only bid during the public agency bid period. The people of Eureka and the Clark district were clear that they wanted a neighborhood facility with opportunities and resources for the children and families of the neighborhood we (the committee) worked tirelessly interviewing potential renters and reviewing their "programs" to see if they were in keeping with the desires of the citizens. CR has plans to intensify use of the school building, put a parking lot in our park :( and more. I think this would be a great story for your Mag. Please contact me for more information.
