The property, which was purchased for $850,000, will be used for a parking lot and field space, as well as an alternate exit for vehicles, the website notes.
The district paid $850,000 for the property. The Lindbergh Board of Education approved the purchase during a closed meeting on Oct. 9, a news release issued on Dec. 21 notes.
"Interest rates are at historic lows and the value of this property is likely to increase over time,” said Dr. Vic Lenz, president of the school board, in a statement. “This space will allow us to meet the needs of Long Elementary families for several generations.”
The properties were previously owned by Dorothy and Richard Abeln, according to St. Louis County property records.
