Pullman School District property sold for residential lots

PULLMAN, WA - After delaying three weeks to hear and consider public input and objections, the Pullman School Board approved the sale of a piece of land near Pullman High School.

The .89-acres on the very northwest edge of the Pullman School District's property will be turned into residential lots by Mader Development.

Both the public and school board voiced several concerns but the board said although many neighborhood residents don't agree, the developer came together with them to form a plan with solutions.

"That was important to our school board: a continuation of a road, access for emergency vehicles and pedestrians and bicyclists to our property," said Pullman School District Executive Director of Support Services, Dan Hornfelt.

The school board said they took all public input very seriously and believe this decision will be a win for all.
