DRIPPING SPRINGS – The Dripping Springs Independent School District Board of Trustees approved a 64-acre land purchase during its Jan. 30 meeting.
The property, located north of U.S. Highway 290 between Ranch Road 12 and Sawyer Ranch Road, is located within Headwaters at Barton Creek, a residential development in Dripping Springs. The property is valued at $1.715 million and will be paid for with 2018 bond funds.
The board identified and acquired the property “for the purposes of future school and school related facilities.”
The board’s Jan. 30 decision seals the final approval of the purchase after an initial August, 24, 2019 vote introducing the idea.
