Land purchase moves forward

BRADFORD—There will be no revote on the recent land purchase authorized by Bradford and Newbury residents.
According to discussion at last week’s Oxbow Unified Union School District board meeting, the Checkerberry Lane property will be used as an outdoor classroom for Newbury Elementary School students.
At a special meeting held on Aug. 17, voters approved spending $68,000 of the unallocated funds left over from the 2020 fiscal year to buy the 10.2-acre piece of undeveloped, forested land in Newbury Village.
