Farmington school board may vote on Maxfield price Tuesday

Farmington Public Schools trustees are expected to vote Tuesday on a request to reduce the sale price of the long-vacant Maxfield Training Center.

Board members meet at 6:30 p.m. in the Schulman Administrative Center, 32500 Shiawassee St. in Farmington.

AC Acquisitions, which initially offered $1.2 million for the downtown Farmington property, asked for a reduction to $1 million after switching its redevelopment proposal from 155 luxury apartments to 60 owner-occupied condos and townhouses. The change came after neighbors protested the larger development.

Also on Tuesday’s agenda are purchase agreements that would sell the former William Grace Elementary School site, 29040 Shiawassee, and Harrison High School, 29995 W. 12 Mile Rd., to the City of Farmington Hills, for $285,000 and $500,000, respectively.

The city signed a $1-per-year lease agreement in 2012 to establish a dog park on the William Grace property. City and school district officials have previously discussed the Harrison purchase; that school will close at the end of the 2018-2019 school year.

The full agenda is posted on the district’s website.
