Twin Falls School District Proposes Annex


By KMVT News

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) With the bond levy passed, the Twin Falls School District is now ready to expand.

However, one plot of land is currently outside of the city limits.

The Twin Falls School District has proposed to annex a plot of land to build one of the two new schools.

A planning and zoning hearing was held Tuesday evening to discuss the school district's request for the commission's recommendation.

The property being requested for annexation consists of approximately 53 acres.

It is located on the east side of the 500, 600, and 700 blocks of Hankins Road North, also known as 3200 East Road.

There were no objections to the request, and the planning and zoning commission gave its recommendation.

"Approximately 10 acres will be set aside to build our school, and then the remainder of the land is going to be sold at a later date. As far as the timeline is concerned, we will break ground on the elementary schools in April, this coming April with a completion date of fall of 2016," explains Brady Dickinson, Twin Falls School District.

With the commission's recommendation, the school district will now take the issue to the City Council for approval.
