At their upcoming respective meetings, The Board of Trustees for Adams State College and the Board of Education for Alamosa School District RE-11J will vote on a lease purchase agreement for Evans Elementary School.
Under the agreement, Adams State will lease and ultimately purchase the property at 108 La Veta Ave. by Jan. 1, 2014, for a total amount of $1,750,000. The parties have set a tentative closing date of Oct. 28, 2011.
School Board President Bill Van Geison said, “The School Board was committed to finding the best possible tenant for the Evans building, in order to maintain stability in the neighborhood and keep home values stable.”
The Adams State Trustees will meet Friday, Sept. 30, to consider a resolution approving the lease purchase. That meeting will be held at 10 a.m. in the Luther Bean Museum, located on the 2nd floor of Richardson Hall on campus. The School Board meets Monday, Oct. 3, at 7 p.m. in the School District Building on Victoria Ave.
“This agreement is a win-win-win: a win for ASC, a win for the school district, and a win for Alamosa,” said Adams State President David Svaldi. “This purchase is simply another milestone in the partnership Adams State has developed with the school district, its board, and Superintendent Alejo. We will continue to seek ways to work together to provide excellent learning opportunities for Alamosa and ASC students.”
