The Pleasanton Unified School District has announced that it is looking for seven to 11 volunteers to help the district decide how to best utilize some of its property assets.
Those individuals will form a new advisory group, called the 7-11 Committee, which will meet three to four times from November to February.
During that time, they will be drafting a report on the recommended uses for the district's surplus property or how to dispose of the property next year which they will then present to the Board of Trustees next March.
According to the news release, the main purpose of the committee is to "review and analyze property owned by the district and determine what real property could be designated as 'excess' or 'surplus' as it will not be needed for school purposes. The committee will then present a report to the Board of Trustees recommending uses for the surplus property or how to dispose of the property."
Under California law, the district must have representatives from the following list of stakeholders within the committee: those representing the ethnic, age group and socioeconomic composition of the district; people in the business community; landowners or renters; teachers or administrators; and parents or students.
The district is also looking for anyone with expertise in environmental impact, legal contracts, building codes and land-use planning.
The deadline to apply for a position in the committee is on Oct. 21 at 4:30 p.m. Those selected to serve on the committee will be notified no later than Nov. 8, according to district officials.
