Info meeting held ahead of vote over Seaford school building sale

The Seaford School District held an informational meeting today about why voters should approve a plan to allow the district to sell a vacant building

SEAFORD - The Seaford School District held an informational meeting today about why voters should approve a plan to allow the district to sell a vacant building to a condominium developer.

Voters will go to the polls on Oct. 14 to decide if the district should sell the building, which district officials say is costing $100,000 a year in upkeep. The plan calls for more than 100 condos, which could generate more that $600,000 in taxes for the district.

However, some residents say they're concerned that the condos will increase traffic in their neighborhood and decrease their property values.
