Land owned by Lake Travis ISD was authorized for sale or exchange by board approval during a Feb. 19 meeting.
The district determined the 12.5 acres of land located at 1701 Lohmans Crossing Road behind Lakeway Elementary School is not necessary to meet LTISD’s current and foreseeable educational needs. The parcel of land will go out for public bid, with the district considering offers for an exchange of land of comparable value.
LTISD owns approximately 18 to 20 acres of land at this location and has determined it will not require the entire plat, according to Amber King, general counsel, adding the resolution made Feb. 19 does not commit the district to any particular transaction.
Although the land is out for public bid, an exchange of land of comparable value will be preferred by LTISD, King said.
Superintendent Brad Lancaster stated any future development planned at this location will be physically separated from the elementary school by two fences and a heavily wooded area.
“From the ground area you wouldn’t be able to see the school,” Lancaster said.
