Location matters: If LASD builds, where would structure go?
One major question that will be before the Ludington Area Schools Board of Education is that should it decide to build, where?
Ludington Superintendent Jason Kennedy outlined last Tuesday that the board paid $700,000 through the early part of the 2000s to acquire 70 acres of land that abuts Jebavy Drive and Bryant Road. That property — the Outcalt property — has trails and a disc golf course.
The school forest is a separate, but abutting, 80-acre parcel of land to the west of the Outcalt property.
“I think it is really important to recognize the differences between those two different pieces of property,” he said of the school forest last Thursday in his office. “There is the property that is the 80 acres that will not be touched. The district has no interest in developing that land. The land was deeded to the school district with the intent of being a school forest.”
