District picks recommendation for Emerson Lawn sale

Posted: Updated:

BOZEMAN - The Bozeman Public Schools District has made a recommendation to the school board for the purchase of the Emerson Lawn.

Steve Johnson the Deputy Superintendent of Operations says that the district will be recommending the plan that they have received from the Emerson Cultural Center.

The Emerson offered $100 more than the highest offer. So, the total offer from the Emerson will be $2,275,100.

The cultural center plans to use the Lawn as a ‘Grand Lawn’ for the art and musical performances.

Three proposals were submitted to the board that were below the lawn’s appraised value of over $2 million. At the end of January, the board gave those who submitted proposals more time to submit another plan that they hoped would be closer to the lawn’s appraised value.

Those proposals were due Monday, Feb. 5th. The district received new plans from each of the three organizations that originally submitted a plan for the lawn.

Money from the sale of the lawn will go to purchasing two new properties that will be the sites of future elementary schools.  

The school board will vote on whether to accept the district recommendation at the meeting on Monday.
