Park District gives new life to closed school

Park District gives new life to closed school

Folsom Cordova Unified School District recently faced the closure of two of their Elementary schools in Rancho Cordova.  Rather than let the facility sit idle, Cordova Recreation and Park District approached the school district about allowing the use of the space for community events and classes.  In a unique and cooperative arrangement, these two public agencies have entered into a long term lease allowing the Park District use of the facility as a new community center, while retaining ownership of the land and facility by the school district for future use as a school.  A low cost, 25 year lease has been negotiated, allowing both agencies to walk away with a win; the Folsom Cordova Unified School District will not have an empty building to attract vandalism and theft, and Cordova Recreation and Park District gains some much needed space
