Craig Emmerson was quite surprised at the news that greeted him Thursday morning.
The managing member of Maricopa 240 LLC had negotiated the sale of a portion of his family land to Maricopa Unified School District for a second high school. When the district announced Wednesday night that the process had come to a screeching halt, Emmerson was confused about the reason.
The partnership of Anderson Palmisano Farms did not sign a required pesticide covenant for its property next door. That effectively halted the purchase of the property.
