The Wake County school board voted tonight to offer to purchase land for a new middle school in northeast Raleigh.
The board is offering $2,896,000 to buy this 29.864-acre parcel on Louisburg Road near Perry Creek Road. The seller is 5401 North LLC, which is aiming to build 2,200 homes in its town center community.
The school is in the M-13 target area that Wake has been searching in. Funding for the land purchase would come from the 2006 bond issue with construction costs likely coming from a future bond issue.
The deal is still subject to approval from the Wake County Board of Commissioners.
