Columbia school board approves potential land acquisition

Background: The district approved plans in April for the county land bank to acquire properties at 306 Cherry St. and 14 Lancaster Ave. Under this proposal, the land bank agreed to finance the Cherry Street purchase and buy the Lancaster Avenue land with existing grant funds.

Next steps: The additional properties under consideration are at 233 S. Fifth St, 237 S. Fifth St, and 239 S. Fifth St. Superintendent Tom Strickler said the execution of this purchase depends on appropriate funding from the land bank, as well as a vote of approval from the Borough Council.
