Rolling Hills Estates has turned down a request from the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District that it modify a proposed development agreement for the closed Dapplegray Intermediate campus.
In reaching the unanimous decision last week, City Council members said more public hearings would be required before any amendments could be considered. No motions were offered calling for hearings.
The decision apparently leaves the next move up to the school board, which has sought to convert the surplus property into cash as soon as possible to help offset projected budget deficits.
Meanwhile, another obstacle to the agreement arose this week when a group of Rolling Hills Estates residents circulated a petition that would require the City Council to rescind the Dapplegray pact or call for a referendum on the issue.
