Kyrene Schools’ governing board is studying the possible sale or other profitable use of two large tracts of land that include the Tempe site of the district headquarters and a much larger tract in Ahwatukee along the I-10 corridor.
Former longtime Kyrene board member Ross Robb, who owns a real estate investment firm, gave a presentation last week on options the district could consider for disposing of the land.
“I am not here for any compensation. This is pure volunteerism and whether it goes anywhere is up to you,” said Robb, who as a board member had suggested that the district seriously consider doing something with the land in an effort to address its precarious long-range financial picture.
