Great Hearts Academies announced Wednesday that it will pull out of a controversial park proposal with Scottsdale in the DC Ranch community.
Instead, the charter-school network will purchase land adjacent to Scottsdale Preparatory Academy for a new K-5 school and a sports complex.
Great Hearts had explored investing $4.5 million to develop athletic facilities on city-owned land off 91st Street and Trailside View. In return, residents would have had a usable park on what is currently vacant land.
