Site proposed for new District 53 school draws opposition
Mar 27, 2013 11:57 AM -
When Butler Elementary District 53 began developing plans for a new school, finding an appropriate site was one of the biggest challenges. A school built to serve almost 500 students should have access to 20 or more acres of land, according to state recommendations, and district officials found only one Oak Brook property meeting that criteria: the Sports Core. One of two ballot questions many Oak Brook voters will see April 9 asks all residents of the village to approve or deny the sale of up to 8.5 acres of village-owned Sports Core land on which the district hopes to build the new school.
