Northshore looks at land near Cottage Lake
BOTHELL--The Northshore School District may buy 28 acres north of Cottage Lake for a future school. According to Dan Vaught, the district is going to do a 90-day feasibility study to determine if the land, which is west of Paradise Lake Road near 201st Ave. N.E., would be a good site for a future elementary school. If so, the district would buy the property for approximately $750,000 cash from Mr. and Mrs. Hermansen. Vaught said the feasibility study would look at geotechnical data, infrastructure, utilities, traffic and environmental considerations. The district and Hermansens have been in negotiations for at about nine months. Bear Creek Elementary and Cottage Lake Elementary are within two miles of the site.
