Oak Park Property

WHAT

  • In 2017, the District acquired a parcel of land located on Badger Road.

  • The land remains an undeveloped asset

  • The RVUSD Board of Education has directed RVUSD staff to conduct a comprehensive review and create a facilities Master Plan for all District-owned property 

  • As a District facility, the Oak Park property will be considered as part of this overall review

  • After careful deliberation, and with input from the public, the Board will make a decision about what to do with the property, which may include doing nothing at all at this time

HOW

  • To ensure a thorough review, the District has enlisted DCG Strategies to conduct a feasibility study to evaluate what is possible for the Oak Park property 

  • The findings of the study will be used to determine the best use of the property to meet the needs of the District and the surrounding community

  • Public input will be sought out and considered as part of the decision-making process

WHY

  • The Board believes it is important to make informed decisions about District assets

  • The Board and the public have a need to fully understand the allowable options for this undeveloped asset

IMPORTANT FACTS

  • We cannot stress strongly enough that we are taking a fresh look at this property and will not necessarily be bound by prior plans for the property

  • We are not entering into this review with any preconceived notions

  • The public will play an important role in the decision-making process

  • We wish to understand what we can do so that we can fully explore viable options. 

  • The RVUSD Board and District Administration are keenly aware that this property was acquired with public funds and want what is in the public's best interest.

  • We are genuinely committed to a transparent and thorough process where every voice will have a chance to be heard
