After months of deliberation, the Board has finally decided to retain all elementary schools for the foreseeable future, and to expend Measure J funds on all facilities.
Now, consistent with recommendations from two 7-11 citizens’ committees, the OUSD Board will begin discussion of the potential sale or lease of all or part of the downtown property on Ojai Avenue. This is a major conversation that must involve the community at large as well as the OUSD community.
The land as the potential to significantly contribute to the vitality and sustainability of the downtown area, as well as add to the amenities for Ojai residents. But only if you participate in the conversation.
