Encinitas School Board to discuss Pacific View tonight
ENCINITAS: School district to consider options for Pacific View site
ENCINITAS ---- School officials in Encinitas are recommending the school district sit tight with its plan to ask the city to rezone a plot of land that once housed Pacific View Elementary School so it can be traded for a revenue-producing property somewhere else.
The district wants the school property to be zoned for residential classification, which could allow as many as 15 homes to be built on the 2.8-acre site.
Residents who live near the property in downtown Encinitas have asked instead that the land be converted into a park. The City Council split earlier this month on a vote to purchase the land for that purpose.
The Encinitas Union School District board of trustees is set to vote on the issue at a meeting scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the district office, 101 S. Rancho Santa Fe Road.
