The Aledo ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously at a special meeting on Tuesday, March 7, to authorize Superintendent Dr. Susan Bohn to complete negotiations to trade approximately 50 acres of land it owns adjacent to McAnally Middle School for 50 acres to the north owned by Walsh Ranches Limited Partnership. The agreement also calls for the purchase of 50 additional adjacent acres from Walsh at a price of $35,000 per acre.
The resulting 100-acre tract is north of McAnally Middle School.
Bohn told the board there would be a period of time for the district to do its due diligence before entering into a final contract.
The resolution approved gives Bohn the ability to negotiate as needed to close on the tract of land.
“As you all know, a 100-acre tract is the size of land we’re looking for a high school site. This could be in the future a high school site as needed,” Bohn told the board.
The tract is undeveloped and would require infrastructure that does not now exist, which is a factor in negotiations.
“There’s a lot of work to do before we negotiate the full close,” Bohn said.
