Great news from the SELPA and SCOE closed board meetings! The SELPA board voted to direct SCOE not to build on the park site, and the SCOE board voted to "relinquish any interest in building the MTU on Magnolia" park. Options for the new MTU site will be reviewed with Redding School District, and in the meantime Gateway USD will continue to host this important service.
A special thank you to those who signed the petition and took the time to contact board members to speak on behalf of the park, and to the members of the SELPA and SCOE boards for their careful consideration of this difficult issue.
Magnolia Park is the public park visible from Placer Street behind Schreder Planetarium in the Magnolia Neighborhood of West Redding. It is a well maintained, grassy park and is used often by families and children for play and recreation, sports teams for practices, and school groups for celebratory events. It is the only public park and playground located within walking distance of most residences in the densely populated neighborhood.
