Oxbow voters approve forest purchase

BRADFORD—For now, it appears that the local school district will own a 10.2-acre property near the school to be used as an outdoor classroom for students at Newbury Elementary School.
Voters at the Oxbow Unified Union School District’s special meeting on Aug. 17 authorized spending $68,000 of surplus funds to buy the undeveloped, forested real estate in Newbury. Residents from both Bradford and Newbury took part, voting 50-38 to approve the deal.
