LEASING LAND

FOR SOLAR FARM

CHERRY VALLEY – Cherry Valley-Springfield Central School voters today authorized the school board, 119-83, to negotiate with a Boston developer, Omni Navitas, to build a solar farm on 25 acres near the high school.

“I thought it was going to be a close vote,” Supt. of Schools TheriJo Climenhaga said a few minutes ago.  “I’m pleased with the overall outcome.”

The school board has the authority to lease land for up to 10 years, but Omni is seeking 25-year lease, and that required a referendum vote.

The superintendent said negotiations on the particulars of an agreement will begin next week between the school board and the company.
