DIAMOND BAR : Purchase Clears Way for School Construction

July 14, 1994

The Walnut Valley Unified School Board has removed a major obstacle to the construction of the South Pointe Middle School in Diamond Bar by voting to buy land to accommodate dirt that occupies the proposed school site.

The construction of a $16-million school on open land purchased from R-N-P Development in the Sandstone Canyon area has been held up awaiting removal of 400,000 cubic yards of dirt from the site. The district paid $1.5 million for the 78-acre site.

Officials had planned to move the dirt to a site next to the school owned by the developer, but they later discovered it would require environmental permits that could take nine months to acquire.
