A special tax district will finance the construction of an elementary school in the Olinda Heights area, the City Council decided this week. The school, tentatively set to open in spring 1999, will serve the 284-acre, 648-home development north of Carbon Canyon Road and east of Valencia Avenue.

The bonds will be paid back by future Olinda Heights homeowners.
