7-11 Committee Public Hearings

The 7-11 Surplus Property Advisory Committee, convened to advise the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) on the disposition of the former Burbank Elementary School property located at 2046 Allen Ave., Pasadena, invites residents and families to meetings in April and May.

The Committee will meet in regular session on April 21 and May 10, 2017  at 7 p.m. at PUSD’s Education Center, 351 S. Hudson Ave., Room 229, Pasadena. Two public hearings on the Committee’s establishment of a priority list for use of property are scheduled for Friday, April 21, 2017 at 9 a.m. at Burbank Elementary School, located at 2046 Allen Ave., Altadena, and on Wednesday, April 26, at 7 p.m at  PUSD’s Education Center, 351 S. Hudson Ave. Room 229, Pasadena.  Information, meeting dates, and meeting agendas are posted here.

State law requires that prior to the sale, lease, or rental of more than 30 days of any excess real property, a governing board of a school district must appoint an Advisory Committee to advise in the development of District-wide policies and procedures about the use or disposition of school buildings or space in school buildings that is not needed for school purposes. PUSD’s 7-11 Committee, which was established in early February 2017, will deliver a final report of its findings to the District’s Board of Education. The Board will then decide what to do with the property.

As part of its property assessment process, the Committee meets several times in public sessions to determine whether the district should declare the former Burbank Elementary School site as surplus. Burbank Elementary School closed in 2012 as a result of declining student enrollment. The site is currently used to house  the district’s Early Education and Mental Health Services programs, and a private school.

The 7-11 Committee has established a list of priorities for use of the Burbank property and invites the public to attend public hearings on April 21 at 9 a.m and April 26 at 7 p.m. to discuss and share their views.
 
The priorities for uses of the Burbank property are:
  • Lease the Burbank property pursuant to state law
  • Status Quo: take no action and maintain current use of the Burbank property
  • Sell the Burbank property pursuant to state law
  • Exchange the Burbank property pursuant to state law
