District 158 may condemn property for new campus Unless a property owner agrees to sell land for a new school campus by July 15, he could face condemnation. The District 158 School Board voted unanimously to begin condemnation of the property if the owner rejects the final offer.

The lx)ard decided to proceed with condemnation only if the owner refuses to accept a final $1.54 million offer. Skyrocketing enrollment has forced the district to build two new schools and to make long- range plans for a third campus. New elementary schools are now under construction: one at the 15 6-acre Hannony Road campus in Huntley and a second at the 240-acre Reed Road site in Lake in the Hills. In April, voters approved two referendums totalling $18 mil¬ lion to pay for the new schools. The district can condemn the land under its power of eminent domain, a right rarely if ever used by District 158. The land was appraised at $11,000 per acre, the amount the district is willing to pay. This year's enrollment stands at about 2,500 students and offi¬ cials expect enrollment to reach 3,000 by the 2000-2001 school year. TLC school's "Mini-March" will take place during the Huntley Town Picnic this Sunday, June 27, in honor of Erik Tegel (above), a student at the school who is battling cystic fibrosis.
