MB school property sale mulled

first_imgChialtas recommended that the district hire an asset manager and an appraiser to review all its properties in even more depth than did the so-named “7-11 Committee” before proceeding any further. “Nothing has actually been declared surplus,” said Chialtas, asserting it would be at least 90 days before an asset manager, once hired, completed such a report. “As I sit here I don’t know which property we’ll sell or lease, if any.” But some community members who attended the meeting worried that it’s only a matter of time. By even bringing an asset manager on board, the unloading of property will appear “a fait accompli – that `Yes, we’re doing it, we’re selling this land,”‘ said Lester Silverman, who is running for school board in November. “It seems we’re going down that road.” Appearances aside, board President Bill Cooper stated emphatically, “Nobody has ever said anything about the definitive sale of property, period.” shelly.leachman@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Trustees and district brass held a public meeting Wednesday afternoon to review what steps have been taken so far and to discuss what’s next. “We’re still very, very early on in a very long process – selling property can take a year or more,” said attorney Andreas Chialtas of the firm Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud and Romo, recently hired to help guide the district through that process, during a brief presentation. “I get the feeling that some people in the community think we’re close to making decisions, but I don’t feel that way at all,” he added. “We need a lot more information before we get anywhere near the next step.” That “next step,” Chialtas said, would be to officially declare a property, or properties, surplus. Four sites – the district maintenance yard, a portion of the old Ladera school site, a portion of the former Manhattan Beach Intermediate School property and the Manhattan Beach Botanical Garden – were deemed to have such potential by an all-volunteer advisory panel that made its final report to the board in May. ASSETS: District officials say the process has just started and there’s no guarantee any of the sites will be declared surplus. By Shelly Leachman STAFF WRITER More than a year after first assembling a committee to determine whether any of its property could be considered surplus, the Manhattan Beach Unified School District has begun laying groundwork for a potential sale. last_img
