Redmond’s City Council plans to act tonight on buying Evergreen Elementary School now that its Urban Renewal District is in place. Mayor George Endicott expects plans to move forward: “And so I think we're prepared to vote tonight. Staff will probably present information on final cost benefit.  How much should we pay, and how does the cost compared to building a new building.” It's expected the City will pay $250,000 for the school and put $10,000 toward maintenance of the building. Since the Downtown Urban Renewal District approved, it's planned the school would become Redmond's new City Hall in several years. If the City Council approves the deal tonight, then the School Board must sign off on it.
