Glide recreational idea

Glide Revitalization had proposed to develop land owned by the Glide School District into a family recreational facility. The district said it was notified that the nonprofit requested to remove its lease proposal.

Glide Revitalization has reportedly pulled out of its plan to negotiate a 99-year no-cost lease with the Glide School District aimed at proposed improvements to the vacant athletic fields between the current high school and former middle school properties.

Its a terrible feeling to put your heart into helping your community only to have it ripped out by the few that were no where to be found when help was needed.


So find out if the funding includes improvement to the water infrastructure and the possibility of helping to build that new middle school. If the recreation center would impact the water infrastructure one would think the BRIC would include that infrastructure. Would the new middle school not have to pass a bond measure to fund building it anyway? Is this a matter of water board and school district fear that DHS/FEMA could take undue control of those entities? There should be resource contacts to answer those questions. You all have work to do, find out. Get on it.
