Re: proposed sale of three acres of land adjacent to Jesse P. Miller Elementary.
Dear school board members:
Please vote NO on the sale of this property.
It is a good buffer from busy Manatee Avenue.
A new entrance/exit on Manatee Avenue will cause more congestion in an already busy area.
Christmas trees and pumpkins have been sold here for years.
Consider selling another valuable piece of property on Manatee Avenue: The Manatee County schools administration building.
Has a sale lease back been considered? Has an outright sale been considered?
What a positive message the school board could send to the students and the community to be housed in a more modest facility.
Superintendent Mills, please lead and look at all options.
