Wake schools to buy former YWCA property in Raleigh
Posted January 24, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — The Wake County Board of Education voted Tuesday to buy the two-acre former YWCA property on East Hargett Street in Raleigh for a future school site.
The school voted 4-2 to purchase the property for $825,000 after the Wake County Board of Commissioners rejected a previous deal to buy three acres for $1 million.
One of the three lots up for grabs after the YWCA filed for bankruptcy in July had a title issue that prevented its sale to the school district.
Still, a spokesman for the school system said the two lots that didn't have title problems will be large enough for a school.
