DOCUMENT: School District Releases Dog Track Rezoning Analysis Report
A 63-page Hudson School District report that will be presented to the City of Hudson Plan Commission compares the St. Croix Meadows dog track property with three other potential secondary school site properties and addresses other concerns.
The Hudson School District will present the report to the Hudson Plan Commission on Sept. 6 and the Hudson Common Council on Sept. 17.
It is the district's goal to persuade the council to rezone the property from commercial use to public use so that the $8.25 million purchase of the property can close and so the district can build a secondary school on the site.
Voters approved a district-wide referendum on April 3, 2012, to finance the purchase of the property. Rezoning is one of the contingencies in the purchase agreement the district has entered with the seller.
