Former Oddstad Elementary School
"After a lenghy discussion during its meeting Nov. 14, the Pacifica School District board of trustees declared all of Oddstad surplus for sale or lease. This has been a hot topic for community members and neighbors who have pressed the board to maintain playing fields on the property.  

Instead of declaring the classroom portion of the site surplus and trying to attract a lessee for only that portion, the PSD board decided to declare the whole school site surplus and to offer the property for sale or lease, but with the clear intention that some part of the property will remain ball fields. The board directed staff to offer the city a low-cost lease of the fields.

The vote to surplus the whole site was not unanimous.  PSD board member Joan Weideman cast the lone vote against it. .... "Why would the city take on additional expense? I am concerned about us being in the park and recreation business," Weideman said."   Read article.
