By a 4-0 vote Tuesday evening, the Fairview Park City Schools Board of Education approved a housing developer’s bid of $435,000 to purchase the 6.5-acre property where Coffinberry School once stood. The board’s vote came despite a last-minute press by Coffinberry neighborhood residents to have the vote delayed.
