|School District Approves Sale of the High School Property |
The Souderton Area School District recently approved an agreement to sell the site of the Souderton Area High School to Philadelphia-based Metro Development Company. The $11 million purchase price will go toward the service of debt on the new high school in Franconia Township and needed improvements to other district schools.
Metro Development Company will present its conceptual plan to the Borough Council at the November 10 Borough Council meeting. The plan, similar to the final conceptual sketch
presented by DePallo Design and Planning in June, is modeled toward a village commercial development and features residential, retail, and commercial uses. Metro Development Company is considering saving and reusing the existing pool facility.
Metro Development Co. will not take possession of the property until the new school opens in September 2009.
