The 7-11 Surplus Property Advisory Committee, convened to advise the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) on the disposition of the former Burbank Elementary School property located at 2046 Allen Ave., Altadena, invites residents and families to a public hearing on June 7, 2017.
The Committee is holding the public hearing to discuss with the community the committee’s draft final report on its recommendation on the use of the property located at 2046 Allen Ave., Altadena. The public hearing will be held on Wednesday, June 7, 2017, at 6 p.m. in the multipurpose room of the former Burbank Elementary School located at 2046 N. Allen Ave., Altadena. Information, meeting dates, and meeting agendas are posted here.
State law requires that prior to the sale, lease, or rental of more than 30 days of any excess real property, a governing board of a school district must appoint an Advisory Committee to advise in the development of District-wide policies and procedures about the use or disposition of school buildings or space in school buildings that is not needed for school purposes. PUSD’s 7-11 Committee, which was established in early February 2017, will deliver a final report of its findings to the District’s Board of Education. The Board will then decide what to do with the property.
As part of its property assessment process, the Committee meets several times in public sessions to determine whether the district should declare the former Burbank Elementary School site as surplus. Burbank Elementary School was closed in 2012 as a result of declining student enrollment. The site is currently used to house some of the district’s Early Education programs, Mental Health Services program, and a private school.
The 7-11 Committee has a list of priorities for use of the Burbank property and invites the public to attend the public hearing on June 7 at 6:00 p.m. to discuss and share its views.
The priorities for uses of the Burbank property are:
• Lease the Burbank property pursuant to state law
• Status Quo: take no action and maintain current use of the Burbank property
