Milton signs agreement with Fulton schools for park space.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Milton continues to expand its park space. City officials signed a 10-year agreement Monday with Fulton County Schools to share a 2-acre plot along Birmingham Highway between Crabapple Crossing Elementary and Northwestern Middle School as a community park. Under terms of the arrangement, the city must make about $110,000-worth of improvements to the field, including a fitness trail, a basketball court, a pavilion and a playing field.

City Council members approved the agreement, despite misgivings about a provision allowing the school district to pull out of the arrangement at any time with a 90-day notice. The district would have to pay the city $20,000 if it cancels in the first two years.

Maybe I'm reading this wrong but if not, this does'nt appear to be a wise choice for the city. That is a lot of money to lay on the table with no guarantee.
