  Voters have chosen to allow Glenwood Springs officials to consider selling property to the Roaring Fork School District. That’s the result of an election that ended Tuesday. The City of Glenwood Springs can now choose to sell property to the Roaring Fork School District.

  Residents formally gave the green light Tuesday for officials to be able to review selling a chunk of property. They can also now consider trading it for land from the school district. Voters cast their ballots in a special election. There were 829 votes in favor to 286 against.

The land in question is currently home to Glenwood’s recycling center. It is next to the Glenwood Springs Elementary School, which education officials hope to revamp in the coming years. The District says doing so would improve student safety and address other issues.
