Negotiations Moving Forward on Former Souderton High
The Souderton Board has approved a re-negotiation of the terms of sale of its old high school, according to Souderton School Board President, Bernie Currie.
“So that means the developer has gotten approvals more quickly from Souderton Borough and that means Souderton Borough must be please with what the developer wants to do. The District will benefit by getting more of a purchase price, sooner than originally planned.”
Currie adds, The parcel that includes the parking lot could be sold by this fall. Other parcels that include the high school itself and some property on the Bucks County side of County Line Road would be sold next year.
