The Findlay School District is looking for a new place to locate a bus garage. The Courier reports the school board talked about possibly buying land or swapping land with the city in executive session last night. The property most likely to be used is on the east side of Broad near Cooper Field. The former Pepsi bottling plant site is also in the mix.
The goal is to get the bus garage out of the flood plain, which is where the existing facility sits. Marathon Petroleum donated more than $1 million in February to be used for the math and science programs, as well as a new bus garage.
Before the district buys new land, soil and geological surveys have to be done. The school system is working with the city to learn all they can about the site before moving forward.
