Has County pursued use of the old Flood Elementary school parcel for park use?

The old Flood Elementary school was between the ball field and highway 101. In 2021, Ravenswood City School District (RCSD) approached County and offered to lease the property to County for use as a extension to Flood Park. It appears that the Parks Department was not interested, whether that was due to the Reimagine Plan had been approved or cost issues or other reasons, County turned down that opportunity.

The alternative to using the school property as an extension to the park to host soccer/lacrosse is to instead convert this parcel to high density affordable housing. However, this land was originally for the public good. A full discussion is on the Extend Flood Park webpage where the community has submitted a proposal to develop a plan and funding to create park space on this land.
