New Hope Gets Winnetka Learning Center
By Andrew Richter
Well the city of New Hope keeps buying property with our money. From the city’s website;
Winnetka Learning Center purchase agreement
On February 11, New Hope City Council members, acting in their role as Economic Development Authority commissioners, approved a purchase agreement with the Robbinsdale School District to purchase the former Winnetka Learning Center site at 7940 55th Ave. N.
And of course the New Hope EDA and the city council are the same people!
After months of negotiation and compromise, the city and School District finalized the terms of the purchase agreement, which calls for the city to purchase the 16.9-acre site for $1.75 million.
$1.75 million? Where New Hope do you get that money??
The site consists of three parcels, including the 5.25-acre Winnetka Learning Center property at Winnetka and 55th avenues. The closing date for the purchase is tentatively scheduled for May.
Why can’t the school district sell to a private developer? Why does the city have to stick their nose in it?
The former school building will likely be demolished to make way for future redevelopment.
Yes and what do you want to be it will be high density housing????
